Junior Choir Program
The Junior Choir Program is a community music program sponsored by Pilgrim Lutheran Church . The choir is made up of student members and friends in grades second through eighth. The choir practices weekly from September through May on Wednesday evenings from 5:15-6:00 PM. The choir sings an average of once per month during the 11:00 AM Worship Service. 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. 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 leaders in High School and many will be music majors in college.
Besides Monthly Sunday Services and special concerts, the Junior Choir is well known for its musical productions. Past musicals have included Godspell Junior , Aladdin Kids and American Ideal.

The 2016-17 musical production will be Godspell, Jr.
The original Godspell was the first major musical theatre offering from three-time Grammy and Academy Award-winner, Stephen Schwartz, and it took the world by storm. Boasting a score with chart topping songs,Godspell JR. is a sensation that continues to touch audiences.
A group of disciples help Jesus Christ tell different parables by using a wide variety of games, storytelling techniques and a hefty dose of comic timing. An eclectic blend of songs, ranging in style from pop to vaudeville, is employed as the story of Jesus' life dances across the stage.
