The Sioux Falls Children’s Choir consists of two performance-oriented choral groups open to young singers with unchanged voices in grades 2 through 8. Coro Dolce is a training ensemble for grades 2 and 3. Our 4th through 8th graders participate in Con Brio, an advanced ensemble that focuses on higher musical skills and additional performance opportunities. Our goal is to offer young musical talents an opportunity to receive well-rounded, high-quality choral training complemented with performance experiences in a variety of community events. Con Brio made their performance debut with the South Dakota Symphony Orchestra in April of 2019.
Both ensembles are divided into fall and spring semesters, both culminating in a concert for friends and family. The choirs perform a wide variety of repertoire, ranging from classical to contemporary. In addition to learning to read music and music theory, the choirs also offer an enriching social experience through friendships and an opportunity to instill discipline and hard work.
The Sioux Falls Children’s Choir hopes to provide the Sioux Falls community a source of pride in the talents and achievements of our youth and to help our members grow into lifelong proponents of the arts and music.
