The public health crisis resulting from the COVID-19 pandemic affects every member of our community: students, families, volunteers, staff, and committed patrons. Even though we’ve had to close our building for now, we’d like to let you know how the Choir School is continuing to engage with our student choristers, supporting them academically and socially while making the best of this unexpected and unprecedented situation.
How are we supporting families?
- We connect families to emergency community resources such as meals and utility assistance.
- Volunteer tutors and mentors ensure our students have access to the academic support and career-focused guidance needed now and well after this crisis is over.
- We have mobilized a virtual classroom equipped with the online tools to ensure the continued access to academic support and musical education for our choristers.
- We continue to hold our weekly, full-choir rehearsals on Wednesday afternoons and evenings. Email us at email@example.com for more information on how to join.

Know an interested student?
We give children the skills and confidence to pursue and achieve their goals. Our year-round, out-of-school time program combines academic support, tutoring, mentoring, health, and lifestyle programs, with professional choral training. Out-of-school time is the general term used to describe both after-school hours and summer months — those critical times when students need the most guidance.
The Choir School’s after-school program is currently running virtually Monday-Friday for the remainder of the academic year, while our Summer Session is currently planned to meet daily June 29 through July 31, 2020. We prepare our choristers for active singing, creating a supportive culture of responsibility and character building that translates to our 100% high school graduation rate.
Due to physical distancing restrictions we have had to cancel upcoming engagements through June 1.
We are still planning to hold our annual gala and benefit concert, whether in-person or virtually. This year it will be in cabaret style celebrating the Great American Songbook. The gala is our biggest fundraiser and we rely on these funds to keep our doors open and to make our program available to students. So “Get Happy” with the Choir School and reserve your tickets today!
