The South Bay Children's Choir is a comprehensive choral training program with seven sequential levels of learning, facilitated by an experienced and fully credentialed staff of choir teachers. The singers (ages 6 to 18) learn voice technique and sightreading as they sing a varied repertoire from classical and folk song literature. Emphasis is on excellence, while learning to work as a team in a nurturing environment. The season lasts from September through the first week in June. South Bay Children's Choir performs four to five times each year.

Auditions are required.
Auditions are child-friendly, most children enjoy the process.
