I had the great pleasure of performing with the Detroit Childrens Choir in a rather avant-garde performance in 2011, and I was so impressed by the effort and dedication the kids put into some pretty difficult and non-traditional music. Working with the kids and the staff was a pleasure, and I'd highly recommend them. Detroit may be well know for music, but sadly with the demise of so many in-school music programs, students must rely on programs like this to gain all the benefits that music can bring to life.

I am currently acting as an assistant conductor for DCC and have seen first hand the impact this organization has on the children it involves. Music is a powerful vehicle and our choirs give children positive experiences that help them grow as an individual and function as a member of a larger group. I have personally witnessed the confidence that singing with DCC has encouraged

On a very first hand basis, I see the growth and results at each rehearsal. They begin the process as just children who want to sing and in the end, they have become a cohesive group that works together for the greater goal. I am so proud of the work that we do and I know that the magic of music is what can help give our children the confidence they deserve.

Find ways to fund this program! We depend on donations and grants and on the ability of the DPS to help with our funding.

These are professional musicians and teachers who are first-rate at teaching choral music to children. I have been impressed at their impact not only on the children's musical knowledge, but also on the their level of responsibility and life skills: being reliable, paying attention, working as a group and feeling responsibility to the group. Most of the children in the choir are badly in need of help in these areas, and I'm glad to see the Detroit Children's Choir assisting in the education of these children.

I have become part of the Detroit Children's Choir family since moving to the Detroit area in August. I met Carol Schoch soon after moving and immediately was impressed in all ways. The vision of this organization for the children of the Detroit area, in community through music, is exactly what this city needs. In fact, it is a model for the nation in both areas of music education and societal unity. These children are receiving far more than musical opportunities for excellence. They are building skills that can bring them up as future leaders in any industry or community they choose for a lifetime. I am privileged to be part of it.

The Great!

I am watching students' growth in musical excellence, in speaking skills, personal awareness in public, maturity, self-confidence and goal setting.

Expand it further to provide free music education on an even larger scale to other areas of Detroit as well as going deeper into the academic skill of reading music notation, which empowers individual musicianship. There is not time or funding right now to do so.

I recently sang in a choral concert in which the DCC children's choir also performed by themselves. They were accompanied by a professional adult chamber orchestra. The children were polite and disciplined in their behavior, clear with their diction, and they sang difficult music with great enthusiasm. They are obviously receiving top-notch instruction. What a wonderful opportunity they have to sing in this choir, receiving expert musical training! Add to that the opportunity to perform with adult professionals, and you have a life-changing experience for each of these children.

Make sure it had enough money to transport the children to and from their concerts, as well as to hire more choral directors in order to reach more children in the Detroit area.
