Treble Choir singers backstage in 2016.

The Treble Choir continues the work begun in the Preparatory Choir.  Under director Darlene Sang, this choir enjoys working on two part singing, score study, musical terminology and general musicianship. This choir performs at the Holiday Concert and the Spring Concert at Chenery Auditorium.

Every two years, the Treble Choir sings in the Nutcracker Ballet with the Kalamazoo Symphony Orchestra and the Ballet Arts Ensemble.  The next Nutcracker Ballet is the weekend of December 8, 2017 and tickets can be purchased through Ballet Arts.

In 2013, the Treble and Concert Choirs performed Carmina Burana with the KSO conductor Raymond Harvey at Miller Auditorium.  C.J. Gianakans of The Kalamazoo Gazette said “the Kalamazoo Children’s Chorus played a small but pivotal role in the work’s (Carmina Burana) third movement, lending a befitting purity of tone. Their voices were delightful and accurate – kudos.”
