Due to the spread of COVID-19, the Children and Youth Choirs will take place virtually through Zoom or other online platforms. We will be updating our schedule and practices as we learn more about implementing safe environments for group gatherings, and as the threat of the virus diminishes.
The Children’s Choir program at Brick Church offers children opportunities to lead worship through music. Choir members learn a wide variety of music of the church, they grow in faith, and they develop vocal and musical skills to open up a lifetime of joyful music making. Choir children have the important role of serving the church and the community in outreach events at an early age. Through choir, children connect with one another, with their faith, and with their community.
Rehearsals are planned to engage singers at developmentally appropriate levels and accommodate many learning styles. The choirs sing throughout the year in Sunday worship services, in outreach events, in the Park Avenue Tree Lighting (grades 2-7) and in the bi-annual Spring Musical.
Come join us; everyone is welcome!
Cherub Choir (Age 4-5)

Children experience music in a variety of engaging ways, such as singing, dancing, playing games, and composing. They develop their singing voice and learn musical fundamentals like matching pitch and feeling the beat. They learn what it means to sing songs to and about God, and they engage in age-appropriate discussions about faith. They learn simple anthems, simple hymn refrains, and traditional children’s church songs.
Carol Choir (Grades K-1)
Tuesdays, 3:30 – 4:00 p.m.
Children continue to develop their musicianship by learning basic solfege (do-re-mi) and hand-signs, learning basic rhythms, and establishing absolute pitch (A-440) through anthems, hymns, vocal exercises, and games. The children interact with each other as they learn about one another and form a community of friends and learners. They learn anthems, hymn refrains, and traditional children’s church songs.
Junior Choir (Grades 2-5)
Tuesdays, 4:05 – 4:50 p.m.
Children use and further develop their language reading and musical reading by working with their own hymnals and copies of music. They continue on their paths as musicians and leaders and singers by developing good vocal tone, reading music notes and rhythms, and singing harmony through songs and games. Children are offered opportunities to lead a group prayer, and they engage in discussions about faith and anthem texts.
