YAALsing Children’s Chorus

YAALsing Children’s Chorus

Registration is open for the FALL 2019 session!

REGISTER

Have fun, learn to sing, and give back to the community through performing with YAALsing, YAAL’s community children’s chorus!  Songs will be a mix of contemporary pop songs and traditional choir music.  Our chorus members represent schools all over the city of Lincoln. This children’s chorus is not affiliated with any religion and aspires to enrich the lives of children from all religious, racial, cultural, and economic backgrounds.

YAALsing does not have a tuition fee attached. There is a required t-shirt fee ($10) and music fee ($5).  Our sheet music is copyrighted, so we have to purchase a set for each student.  If you participated in the last session of chorus, you do not need to pay another t-shirt fee, unless you need a different size.  Be sure to bring your music folder back so we can fill it with our new songs!

This year’s chorus is limited to 20 students, who must be in 2nd grade or up.
