Famed choir now offered for boys

The acclaimed Shenandoah Valley Children’s Choir, celebrating its 20th year, is offering a unique opportunity for boys ages 8-13 to share their vocal talents.

Led by Julia J. White, Artistic Director and Founder of the SVCC, the Shenandoah Valley Boychoir is a six-week experience where boys will learn basic music reading and vocal skills and engage in a variety of boy-friendly repertoire.

“We have been wanted to do this for many years and would be delighted if this opened up options for SVCC in the future,” said White. “There has been so much positive feedback already that we are hopeful to be able to have two age groupings of the Boychoir.”

No audition is necessary and boys with unchanged voices are encouraged to participate. The ability to match pitch is helpful but not required.

The choir will meet from 4:45 – 6 p.m., each Monday from April 16 – May 21, in Eastern Mennonite University’s (EMU) Martin Chapel. The final date will feature a short program for parents and friends.

To register, visit or call 540-432-4650 by Monday, March 12. Cost is $40.

For more information on the SVCC visit, email or call Yvette Peake, choir manager at 540-432-4650.
