Milwaukee Children's Choir is an audition-based, advanced children's choral music organization. Established in 1994, Milwaukee Children's Choir has been providing children grades 1-12 with exceptional choral music instruction and performance experiences that foster creativity, personal expression, and social growth. Through child-centered, age appropriate instruction, Milwaukee Children's Choir educates the whole child, teaching beyond music by incorporating important life skills into its curriculum. Offering rehearsal locations throughout the Greater Milwaukee area, Milwaukee Children's Choir is able to incorporate children from throughout the whole of Southeastern Wisconsin. Our Elements of Music Program - Melody, Harmony, and Rhythm - is how we fulfill our mission of building noteworthy character. Melody operates evening choir programming suitable for youth of all ages. Harmony provides supportive programming for Melody, including Songbirds and the Wisconsin Children's Choral Festival. Rhythm offers continuing education opportunities to area music educations, and quality in-school music education to MPS schools.

Experts say that singing in a choir has a remarkably positive impact on children. Studies show music education helps students perform better in school and become more well-rounded individuals. Parents agree and singers simply say that singing in the choir is so much fun!

 Our Choirs

Harmony Program

Milwaukee Children's Choir believes music education is an important part of childhood development. Therefore, our Harmony Program brings weekly music education classes to children in Milwaukee Public Schools where it would otherwise be nonexistent.  The in-school Harmony program serves more than 400 students, while the after-school and evening programs serve another 100 children.  The program comes at no cost to the children and is supported by our incredible funders.  

Educators

Members of the Milwaukee Children's Choir artistic team are talented music educators and performers known for their musicianship, passion for quality music education, leadership in the field of music, and the joy with which they teach.  Key concepts from the Kodaly methodology are integrated into the curriculum: singing as the basis for music education, folk music for beginning singers, use of solfège, performing the highest quality of music, developing the complete musician, and using a sequenced, age-appropriate curriculum.
