The Preparatory Choir is directed by Betsy Craig. It is the beginning choir of the Kalamazoo Children’s Chorus. Third to fourth graders learn to work in an extended weekly rehearsal environment where the focus is on developing skills in reading a choral score and introduction to part singing. Movement, games and fun songs are all a part of this lively group. The Prep Choir performs at the Holiday Concert and the Spring Concert.
Children who wish to join the Preparatory Choir audition in May, but must be at least 8-years of age by the time rehearsals begin in September. At the end of the season, members of this choir automatically move to the Treble Choir.
The Kalamazoo Children’s Chorus offers local businesses an opportunity to support the individual choirs. KCC kids appreciate the support local businesses give to our choirs, which allow them to have special team building activities such as Prep Choirs’ annual an end-of-season pizza party!
The Kalamazoo Children’s Chorus thanks PK Contracting for it’s generous support of the 2015-2016 Prep Choir.
