JPAC’s Youth Choirs are open to young singers in grades 3-12 who love to sing and perform. Sharpen our vocal skills by learning and singing both traditional youth choral numbers as well as modern, upbeat songs.  All experience levels and musical abilities are welcome.   Regular attendance is required.   Each Choir will perform at the fall and spring Music & Drama festivals, as well as several other venues throughout each season.  Complete performance schedules will be available closer to each session.

All singers who wish to participate in the youth choirs should attend on the vocal placement dates listed above.  Singers do not need to stay the entire session.   Please prepare a song 30 seconds to 1 minute in length, sung a cappella (without accompaniment).  This not an audition but merely for the directors to access your vocal skills. A parent or legal guardian must accompany singers to receive information and complete registration.  Early registration is strongly recommended.  Class will be cancelled if not enough interest, so register early.
