The San Diego Children's Choir is able to pick up where our schools leave off, whether it is at the elementary, middle school or high school level. In fact, some school programs are now non-existent due to California's budget crisis. Studies have shown that children who perform in choirs do better in school and later in life. The San Diego Children's Choir gives children from throughout San Diego and neighboring communities the opportunity to perform in settings that inspire them.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

Listening to the parents of the choiristers, volunteers, staff and other board members on how well the children are doing both when they are in the choir and after they have left in college and their careers.
