Milwaukee Children's Choir policy on singers and schools: Milwaukee Children's Choir shares teachers' belief in the value of music education during the regular school day. We want to strengthen school music programs by further developing the voices and character of our members.
We rely heavily on teacher recommendations. With just a few minutes of your time, you can enrich your student's lives by sharing Milwaukee Children's Choir as an opportunity for them to build leadership and vocal music skills.
1. Hosting in School Auditions!
With your and your principal’s permission, our Artistic Director would visit your school to speak to your students about being a member of MCC.
Students in grades 1-12 are eligible to audition! While we are a tuition-based program, no family has ever been turned away due to a financial hardship. We have tuition assistance available to those who need it, thanks to our generous individual donors, foundations, and the United Performing Arts Fund.
2. Invitation for Students!
If you are not amenable to an in-school audition, we would love the opportunity to distribute audition flyers to your students. Flyers are available electronically or by hard copy. If you can distribute the flyers electronically through your school newsletter, just let us know. If you would like to have hard copies delivered to your school, let us know how many copies you will need. We can even bundle them by classroom! Send an email to [email protected].
3. Free Choral Workshop for Your Choir!
In light of your continued support, our Artistic Director would also like to offer a free choral workshop for your choirs! This workshop could be scheduled during your choir’s regularly scheduled class period or at another time of your choosing. Should you like to schedule a workshop for your singers, please feel free to contact our Artistic Director by email at [email protected] or by phone at 414.221.7040.
4. May we loan you music? Milwaukee Children's Choir has an expansive music library and is willing to loan music.
Call 414.221.7040 or send an email to [email protected] if you would like to borrow music.
The success of Milwaukee Children's Choir is dependent, in large part, on the support of music teachers in the Milwaukee area. MCC encourages its singers to participate fully in school music programs. Our members are expected to be leaders in music ensembles and active participants in school choirs when possible.
