CHILDREN AND YOUTH CHOIRS

Youth Choir

Oak Hill’s Youth Choir is for those interested in spreading God’s word through music and contributing to worship in a fun way! Youth Choir is open to 6th-12th graders. It meets every Sunday during the school year, 12:30-1:30 p.m. in the choir room (A103). Snacks are provided. Choristers can expect to learn a variety of styles of Christian Choral music, cultivate and improve music literacy, develop beautiful vocal tone, and sing in multiple parts. Are you in Band or Orchestra at school? Singing improves performance on any instrument and if you’re interested, Ms. Kati would like to feature you with the Youth Choir once or twice during the year! The Youth Choir sings twice a month in any of the three services on Sundays and for larger services such as Christmas Eve and Easter. Little practice is required outside of rehearsals, if at all, and therefore does not take away time from schoolwork. If you, your child or someone you know is interested in joining Youth Choir, please contact the Director, Kati Cox via email at katiacox@gmail.com. New singers are welcome at any time during the year!
