Our Mission

 

It is the mission of The Westchester Children’s Chorus to engage and empower our diverse community of children through choral education and performance opportunities. Our commitment to artistry and performance creates a collaborative space with hands-on musical learning experiences, while bringing cultural events to the residents of Westchester and its surrounding areas.

     DIRECTOR'S NOTE

Students are empowered and inspired to become young artists by communicating through song and growing in their own understanding of musicianship and artistry. At the Westchester Children's Chorus, we provide a space for students to collaborate and explore their artistry through music and song.

As a public school music teacher in Westchester, I have observed and collaborated with the talented music educators in our community. I am inspired by what my colleagues are doing in their own school music programs and seek to ornament and complement the wonderful in-school music that is already occurring. The Westchester community has a wealth of outstanding musical opportunities and ensembles and we want to add to these experiences. The Westchester Children's Chorus provides a community-based opportunity for students to further develop their vocal skills, musicianship and artistry through a shared engagement in singing.
