“When parents ask me how to instill a love of music in their children, I enthusiastically recommend The St. Louis Children’s Choirs. The Children’s Choirs gave my son a love for great music and I am continually impressed with the artistry and excellence reflected by the students in the program. The beauty of their singing and the heartfelt sincerity they bring to their work is extraordinary.”
