Come Sing!

Join the Upward Youth Choir!

1st- 12th Grade

Upward Youth Choirs provide an opportunity for students to learn the fundamentals of singing while being encouraged to grow in their faith with Jesus Christ.  We serve our community by using our voices to uplift and encourage others.  Our Veteran’s Day concert is designed to honor God, our country and those who have served and are currently serving to give us the freedoms we enjoy today.  Song selections will include patriotic music, folk songs, spirituals, and sacred numbers.

Upward Choir is for kids in 1st-12th Grade and runs from August 20 – November 5. 

NEW! TUESDAY rehearsals will be scheduled between 4:30-7:30 pm at Bethel Church in the Choir Room.

The primary choir will consist of younger students who benefit from a shorter rehearsal (60 minutes) and more rote teaching.  The secondary choir will meet after the primary choir and is designed for students who are ready for a longer rehearsal (75-90 minutes) and are learning to read music. Parent input is welcome for placement. All students will be included in a choir.

The cost to participate is $109 which includes sheet music, a folder and a choir robe for the concert.
