Choirs and Classes

Valley Community Youth Choirs offers a leveled choir program designed to meet the needs of children from Preschool through 12th grade. We care deeply about the children and strive to provide a loving environment where each child feels like an important part of the group.  We believe in the power of singing to shape the child into someone with confidence, compassion, and leadership skills.



Music Makers

Music Makers (formally called Cherub Choir) is for children ages 4-6. Through playful activities, games, and movement, participants work together to make music. Each class includes practice on in-tune singing, steady beat, and beginning music literacy skills. Emphasis is on joyfully making music!



Melodía is for children in 2nd-5th grades. Participants develop their vocal technique and expand their music literacy skills through enticing games and activities. This choir sings both unison and multi-part music in a variety of styles, including traditional, classical, folk, and contemporary pop songs. The primary goal for the singers is to experience the sheer joy of singing together.

Male And Female Students Singing In Choi


Armonía is for children in 6th-12th grades. Singers will cultivate their vocal technique, intonation, and music literacy skills. Most of the vocal literature for this group uses 3-part and 4-part harmony. A variety of musical styles are experienced, including traditional, classical, folk, and contemporary pop songs.  Confidence, 

leadership, and musicianship are emphasized.
