My 8-year-old daughter is currently a member of the newly formed Detroit Children's Choir Concert Chorale under the direction of Lauri Hogle and she absolutely loves it! Ms. Hogle and the co-directors are clearly very experienced in working to bring out the very best in children's voices, and my daughter leaves each rehearsal with excitement and motivation to practice the pieces that they are learning during the week. As a homeschooler, the Detroit Children's Choir is definitely her favorite extracurricular activity. As a parent, I am impressed with the directors, multiple performance opportunities, and the principles of discipline, teamwork, and performance that my daughter is learning. We feel very blessed that she is able to be a member of such an amazing choir at such an early age, and recommend this experience to any child that has an interest in singing.
DCC has made a great impact on my son Cameron (DCC member). When auditions were held about a year ago Cameron was dead set against everything (becoming a member). Cam is a child that doesn't want to do much of anything outside of home other than going to church and playing drums.
Well, being a DCC member Cameron has experienced the wonders of all different types of music through voice and song. He's made a few good friends and enjoys seeing each choir member at every rehearsal.
Mrs. Schoch (Choir Director) is so gentle and patient with each of her choir members. Her true passion for teaching and her love of music shines as a bright light through the eyes, ears and hearts of everyone who is Blessed to be apart of this wonderful organization and all who are fortunate to experience the wonders of her music.
