Educational Outreach

The St. Joseph Community Chorus is committed to passing the gift of song and the singing traditions of America to future generations by providing exceptional quality educational outreach opportunities to the regional community and area schools.

The Chorus piloted a new educational outreach program in the Spring of 2015 at two St. Joseph elementary schools. Its focus is understanding the cultural significance of patriotic, folk, spiritual and multicultural music.
