Choir In The Glades

Bringing Songs, Smiles and Self Esteem to Children in the Glades

Young Singers of the Palm Beaches is proud to produce Choir in the Glades. Our elementary school program started in January 2015 with 28 singers in grades 3-5. This successful program has now expanded into Lake Shore Middle School.

Our program is offered free to all students, whether in public, private or home schools, in the Belle Glade, Canal Point and Pahokee areas. Programming is led by music professionals who provide quality choral instruction and enrichment during after school hours. Rehearsals are held weekly, culminating in multiple performance opportunities each year.

Singers in our program learn:

  • Proper choral singing including vocal technique, posture, breathing, diction, vowel articulation
  • Music interpretation and music history
  • Rehearsal and performance techniques
  • Presentation and etiquette

Through music and through working with each other, our singers also learn:

  • Communication skills and how to work as a team
  • Problem-solving skills
  • Appreciation for other cultures
  • Self-esteem and pride in oneself and in the group
  • Good citizenship and the importance of “giving back” to the community
