We believe in the importance of providing excellent musical opportunities for children to help prepare them to be well-rounded and joyful musicians! At FUMC Belmont, we are pleased to announce two new children's choirs for Fall 2018- the Alleluia Children's Choir (grades K-2) and Jubilate Children's Choir (grades 3-5)!
Both choirs will meet on Sundays from 4:00-5:00pm beginning September 9th to prepare for the Christmas Musical, "Wise Guys and Starry Skies!" The choirs will also sing in worship once a month and join the Youth and Adult Chancel Choirs for special music. All children who participate in choir will receive a t-shirt (please see below for registration).
The Alleluia Choir (grades K-2) will provide children with a fun introduction to music fundamentals through singing, games, activities, and playing Orff instruments. We want the Alleluia Choir to be a place where children will establish a life-long love of music and singing, and develop the skills to share the joy of music with others!
The Jubilate Choir (grades 3-5) will focus on exploring the voice as an instrument to help prepare musicians to be active participants in worship, and develop confidence to share their music! Choristers will continue to build their musical skills by playing Orff instruments, hand chimes and enjoying fun activities! The Jubilate Choir will also have the opportunity to sing with the Youth and Adult Chancel Choirs for special occasions.

The choirs will work together with the Youth Choir to prepare a fantastic, hilarious, fun-filled Christmas Musical, "Wise Guys and Starry Skies," to be performed on Sunday, December 16th in Carpenter Hall.
