Youth Choir is
meeting again!

Our church’s Youth Choir is a tuition– and audition-free church and community choir offered by the First Presbyterian Church of Ithaca.  Choral singing is good for children and youth, and one of the best ways to grow faith.  It builds self-confidence, fills singers with dignity and self-esteem, involves teamwork and community, supports math, English, and foreign language skills, requires self-discipline, and is an excellent brain-builder.  It’s GREAT for us!  Any child who is able will be welcome to participate.  If a child isn’t sure, parents can come with them for a while to see how it goes.  We intend to have high standards for behavior and respect, but we welcome everyone to our choir.

Rehearsals are held Sundays from 11:20-12:15 in the Choir Room on the lower level of the church.
