Rehearsals, Wednesdays, 5:00-5:30pm, Choir Room
(Optional Dinner with the Choristers, 5:30-6:00, and playtime with Ms. Linda, 6:00-7:00pm)

Many kids at this age show a great interest in music, but often times parents find that they are a little young to begin instrument lessons. The Allegro Choir is the perfect solution: we teach beginning music ideas, how to sing, and how to be a part of a successful team. Parents can drop off their children at the choir room and then go upstairs to fix a cup of coffee or tea. The Choir sings four Sundays a year as part of the 10:15am service at St. Thomas.

FIRST REHEARSAL: Thursday, October 11, 5:00pm.
