Shout with joy to the Lord, all you lands; lift up your voice, rejoice, and sing.

The Choir School at Grace Church

The Choir School at Grace Church opened in January 2007.  Since then, the program has grown and adapted to meet the needs of its diverse members.  Young people beginning in Grade Two are provided a quality music education which includes singing, sight-reading, music history, and church customs and terminology.  The School is directed by Ryan Patten and an audition is required.  The Trebles of the Choir School sing five large services and concerts throughout the year.  Each student is required to pay tuition, although scholarships are available.  Click here for more information!

Music Together

is an internationally recognized early childhood music program for babies, toddlers, preschoolers, kindergarteners, and the adults who love them.

First o
ffered to the public in 1987, it pioneered the concept of a research-based, developmentally appropriate early childhood music curriculum that strongly emphasizes and facilitates adult involvement. Music Together classes are based on the recognition that all children are musical. All children can learn to sing in tune, keep a beat, and participate with confidence in the music of our culture, provided that their early environment supports such learning.

Music Together, taught by Teresa Ines Coelho, is offered this year at Grace Church on  Saturday at 9:30 am. Click on Teresa's picture to learn more about her and the program.
