LSUS Youth Choir
Twice a year, for Holiday Celebration in December and Celebration in Music in May, RE students who love to sing rehearse with the Music Director and join the LSUS Choral Group to perform for the congregation.
Children as young as 2nd graders are welcome to join.
The Music Director picks songs that are appropriately challenging for different age groups. The students learn to follow the direction and to be ensemble performers, but also are given opportunities to be creative: they may collaborate to choreograph to a song, or make up a skit. In the past, the Youth Choir joined the Choral Group on Musical Outreach trips to retirement homes, bringing joy and happy tears to the residents.
The video above is from the annual all-music service, Celebration in Song, in May 2011. The Youth Choir is singing a delightful song called "J'entends Le Moulin (I hear the windmill)" in harmony, with very little help from the Music Director.
