NMC Children's Choir


The NMC Children's Choir (NMCCC) is a program of exemplary choral music ensembles that develops high levels of artistic, expressive singing for students in Kindergarten through grade 9 in the greater Grand Traverse Area. Participation in the choir is open to all and is a full-school-year commitment, including choral performances; however, students in grades K-3 may join in January. The choir organization consists of six ensembles. Students are placed in an ensemble based on age and experience level.

Prelude Choir                                    EEYP920

(a musical term meaning “introductory music”) K-1 graders – no audition required. Prelude is NMCCC’s introductory program for Kindergarten and 1st grade students. This non-auditioned group meets Tuesday evenings for an eight-week session. Young singers learn about their voices and learn basic singing techniques in a friendly, nurturing environment. Returning Prelude singers may register now. New students may call (231) 995-1700 to be placed on a waiting list; you will be notified after December 14 if there is room in the choir for new singers.
