Our world needs creative, confident, and responsible young leaders. Our mission of “shaping young lives through musical excellence” is based on guiding principles and core values that promote a vision of a world united by young artists who love music and each other. Every program is designed to empower young people to reach their full potential by fostering excellence and character development through a rigorous choral music education curriculum. Each singer is encouraged to always do their best demonstrating that great artistry has nothing to do with age or background but everything to do with commitment, discipline, respect, and teamwork.
“I love the sense of community we have. I feel like no one gets left out. We all put aside our problems to sing music.”
“My child is receiving a music education in a format that emphasizes teamwork and excellence. The attention to detail required of the singers is something that will serve them well in every endeavor.”
“I love the dedication, the hard work, the friendship, and the love that everyone puts into this group.”
“The Choirs bring kids together that would normally not meet, teaches them to be respectful of others, and lets them explore different points of view through the common lens of music.”
“Singing in SLCC has had a profound impact on my life. This choir has taught me the importance of professionalism, how music performed with love can heal mankind, and has given me a second home.”
“We feel the Choirs are the best organized and professional extra-curricular activity we’ve seen. Wednesday night rehearsals are the highlight of her week!”
“Because I have been in the choirs since I was in elementary school, I learned from a young age how to be kind, diligent, respectful, and hard-working. These qualities I have carried with me my entire life.”
