The Junior Choir Program is a community music program sponsored by Pilgrim Lutheran Church . The choir is made up of student members and friends ages 8-13. Its musical selections range from classical to contemporary religious songs.

The Junior Choir program teaches every child proper vocal technique and the ability to read and understand music in a fun, kind, and collaborative setting. Every rehearsal our choir members play rhythm and ear training games that develop their musical abilities.

Many of the choir members go on to be music leaders in High School and many have been music majors in college. The strong friendships formed in past choirs have lasted for decades!

In addition to monthly Sunday Services, performance opportunities include talent shows, mini-musicals, Christmas caroling, and the annual Holiday Singalong at Wolf Trap with the U.S. Marine Band “President’s Own.”

Singers with a background in instrumental playing are also encouraged to take part in our Instrumental Program.
