Detroit Children's Choir

WDET STAR recipientThe Detroit Children’s Choir was established as a vehicle to help the children of metropolitan Detroit grow — gaining self confidence, social and political awareness, and academic skills – while setting the stage for continued active involvement in the arts throughout their lives.

The organization’s mission is to use the power and discipline of singing to bring together Detroit’s children in grades 3-8 – from urban and suburban communities, representing a wide range of ethnicities, religions and socio-economic levels – in a way that strengthens team building, creativity, social interaction, understanding, and connection.

The connection of choir members has been shown to bridge social gaps, fostering awareness of different perspectives on life. It is our hope that the members of the Detroit Children’s Choir will become ambassadors to their own communities, the City of Detroit and beyond, as they share their inspired music at local public events and on tour.
