The Durham Children’s Choir is a community organization founded in 2004 made up of outstanding young singers from elementary and middle schools, public and private, and home-schooled children, in the Durham and neighboring communities. Their mission is to learn a wide variety of high quality choral music, both sacred and secular, and to share that music with the community through public performances. Starting with the 2014-15 season, the choir is under the direction of new Artistic Director, Dena Byers.
The Durham Children’s Choir studies and performs a wide variety of choral music, including sacred and secular music, world music, gospel, Broadway, and American popular songs.
Music theory and appreciation are included in weekly rehearsals which run throughout the traditional school year.
