Lee University Children's Chorale is a community choir, established in 1996 to provide supplemental singing experiences for children, grades 1–12.

 Focusing on vocal development, musical training, and performance, the enrichment program is directed by Joy Gibbons.

Mrs. Gibbons has over 25 years of experience as a music educator in the private sector.  She has served as pianist, organist and choir director at churches in the Atlanta and Chattanooga areas.

“The greatest reward of my many years in music education is the privilege of encouraging hundreds of students to develop a love of music for a lifetime,” said Mrs. Gibbons.  

Mrs. Gibbons asks that students grades 4-12 be prepared to sing a familiar song of their choice at the auditions. Children grades 1-3 are not required to audition.

Tuition for the semester is $100 per student.
