Famed Choir Now Offered for Boys

SVCC BoyChoir001

The acclaimed Shenandoah Valley Children’s Choir (SVCC), celebrating its twentieth year, is offering a unique opportunity for boys ages 8-13 to share their vocal talents.

Led by Julia J. White, Artistic Director and Founder of the SVCC, the Shenandoah Valley Boychoir is a six-week experience where boys will learn basic music reading and vocal skills and engage in a variety of boy-friendly repertoire.

“We have been wanted to do this for many years and would be delighted if this opened up options for SVCC in the future,” said White. “There has been so much positive feedback already that we are hopeful to be able to have two age groupings of the Boychoir.”
