The Lee University Children's Chorale will have registration and auditions each Tuesday in January from 5-5:30 p.m. in the Curtsinger Music Building, room 200. No appointment is necessary to audition.
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.
Ms. 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. Most recently, she was the director of choral music at Hilger Higher Learning as well as the founder of C.H.I.M.E. (Chattanooga Homeschoolers in Music Education) and currently serves as music director of First Lutheran Church in Chattanooga.
“The greatest reward of my many years in music education is the privilege of encouraging hundreds of students to love music for a lifetime,” said Ms. Gibbons.
Ms. Gibbons asks that students in 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.
Rehearsals are held each Tuesday evening. Grades 1-3 meet from 5:30–6:15 p.m. and are directed by Victoria Betts. Grades 4-6 meet from 5:30–7 p.m. and Grades 7-12 meet from 7:30–9 p.m., directed by Ms. Gibbons.
Tuition for the semester is $100 per student with discounts available for families with multiple students.
