South Hills Children's Choir
The mission of SHCC is to provide quality music education with the goal of attaining the highest level of artistic excellence in choral music performance. SHCC endeavors to enrich the lives of youth from all religious, racial, cultural, and economic backgrounds from Southwestern Pennsylvania’s youth. We seek to foster the ideals of musical excellence, beauty, goodness, and truth.
The SHCC is a music performance and education program for children and youth that emphasizes the development of musical skills, discipline, sense of accomplishment, and understanding. Singing, as a powerful means of expression, is the major focus of the SHCC musical experience. We hope this experience will form the foundation of a life-long relationship with music for the singers and their families.
Programs and Services
- Our program is divided into 2 main choirs: Canticle, our newcomer group for ages 8-10, and Concordia, the intermediate choir for ages 11-17. Our touring group, Chorale, requires a further audition and travels to experience musical enrichment and share choral music. This group is selected from Concordia Choir, requiring a more serious commitment, but has the opportunity to sing at special venues throughout the year, such as singing in Carnegie Hall, New York City on June 26, 2016.*
- We sing together to experience the joy of singing in a group, making life-long friends. Each rehearsal involves exercises in excellent vocal technique, music theory, music reading, and music history, opening up a new musical world. We sing songs from other communities, cultures, centuries, and the Great Composers. We strive to create beauty and understand truth where every member is significant, ultimately sharing the gift of song with others in need and in our neighborhoods.
