The NewSound program has three choirs:
Prelude is for children age 4 (by September 1, 2017) and Pre-Kindergarten. They rehearse Wednesdays from 5:15-6pm. The children will enjoy discovering their singing voice while learning age-appropriate songs about God. The children will look forward to this weekly time with their choir friends and leaders as they sing, explore, play games and have fun with instruments. Prelude will focus on musical exploration and early music skills.
Psaltery is for children in Kindergarten through 2nd grade. They rehearse Wednesdays from 5:15-6pm. The children in Psaltery will enjoy developing their young musician skills, as they use their singing voices together to sing God's praises. The children will have fun singing, playing instruments and participating in musical games. Psaltery will serve as worship leaders and sing 1 – 2 times during the fall semester and 3 – 4 times during the spring semester.
Cantate is for children in the 3rd – 5th grades. They rehearse Wednesdays from 5:15-6pm. In Cantate, the fun continues while learning more advanced musical skills. The games, and the music, are more challenging… and more fun! Cantate will be active in worship leadership by singing at least monthly during worship services. They will also sing with other St. John’s musical groups throughout the year. Cantate will also participate in the Service of Lessons and Carols during Advent, other special worship services and community events.
