Milwaukee Children’s Choir is Southeastern Wisconsin’s premier youth choir. Since 1994, Milwaukee Children’s Choir has been delighting audiences and providing children, ages 5-18, with exceptional choral music education and performance experiences that foster creativity, personal expression and social growth.
As an audition-based, advanced children’s choral music program, Milwaukee Children’s Choir maintains six levels of choral education for children from 1st-12th grades. The Choir offers rehearsal locations throughout the whole of Southeastern Wisconsin. Milwaukee Children’s Choir partners with schools to provide music education, affecting the lives of over 1,000 children each week.
Now celebrating its 24th season, Milwaukee Children’s Choir maintains a collaborative relationship with area arts organizations, while also supporting area music educators through clinics and workshops. The Choir developed and annually hosts the Milwaukee Choral Conference, an intensive choral workshop for choral conductors as well as current and aspiring choral music educators, created to explore solutions for promoting and preserving the choral arts today and for future generations. Conference clinicians have included Dr. Anton Armstrong, Henry Leck, Dr. Rollo Dilworth, Dr. Doreen Rao, and Jim Papoulis. Other frequent collaborators include the Milwaukee Symphony Orchestra and Milwaukee Ballet’s “The Nutcracker”. Voices of Eterna, Milwaukee Children’s Choir’s premier treble ensemble, have been featured at the Wisconsin Choral Director’s Association State Conference in Appleton, Wisconsin and Milwaukee Children’s Choir have hosted a collaborative concert with Rock and Roll Hall of Famer’s, THE FOUR TOPS.
Milwaukee Children’s Choir utilizes Voice for Life, an internationally recognized, advanced music education curriculum. From vocal development and musical literacy to leadership skills, the curriculum builds upon each chorister’s artistic excellence and character. The Choir also offers regional, national, and international touring opportunities for students.
Milwaukee Children’s Choir is a proud member of the United Performing Arts Fund, American Choral Director’s Association, Wisconsin School Music Association, and Chorus America.
