Benefits of membership in a performance chorus
Take a breath. Let it out. Now take another. Let it out. There are 50 people in the room, all breathing at the same time. Eyes trained on the person at the front of the room, following her every move. Never has a breath been felt more than when it is taken in unison with a group of other people. When children sing in a chorus together, they learn so much more than the notes, rhythms and words. They learn cohesion. They learn collaboration. They learn that their voice is important to the sound of the whole. They learn that they are being counted on to do their best.

One of the main things I enjoy is the choice of music. The challenge is what I appreciate. From the beginning to the end of the year, I actually felt like my musician skills grew. I can’t wait for next year!
My name is Isaiah and I’ve watched my older siblings sing with the Frederick Children’s Chorus for years. I’m old enough now to sing with them and I just finished my first year in training chorus. My first year was really fun. I like singing and it is a good way to learn a different language, make friends and to learn how to figure out the key signature for a song. I’m excited for rehearsals on Tuesdays and performances are fun.
My first year in chorus was amazing. I love to sing. The rehearsals were hard, but relaxing at the same time. I remember a time I was really stressed about school and when I was singing, my mind didn’t drift back to what I was stressed about for the whole rehearsal. I worked hard, but it was really a stress reliever for me. And I suppose it’s hard not to like it there since everybody’s so nice. I’m definitely joining chorus again.
