Young voices ring out at St. Paul’s

News Sep 10, 2009 Ancaster News

St. Paul’s United Church in Dundas is tuning up for its children’s music programs.

There are two choral groups involving over 25 children that get underway Sept. 24. Children age four to seven make up the Sunbeams, led by Jennifer Cooper, and children eight to 13 are the Celestial Singers, led by Fredric DeVries, director of music at St. Paul’s. Both groups meet on Thursdays at 6:30 p. m. with supervision and support from parents and other interested adults.

More and more parents are becoming aware of the scientific evidence linking music to enhanced intelligence and academic achievement. Through St. Paul’s Choirs, children receive training in reading music and singing, and have an opportunity to participate in the community worship life of the church. Handbell playing and the use of other instruments is also incorporated into the musical experience.

Participation in St. Paul’s Children’s Choirs also offers social benefits of teamwork, responsibility, creativity, and accomplishment.

The young singers get to know each other as they engage in fun group activities with the highlight of the year being the annual dramatic musical production. In May 2010, the choirs present Table for Five Thousand.

The programs are free of charge. Call 905-628-6396 for more information.
