Review for World Children's Choir, Inc., Annandale, VA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I sang with the World Children’s Choir for ten years – from elementary through high school. My family and I made wonderful friends who we are still close to today. First and foremost, in my opinion, I learned how to sing, how to love and appreciate vocal performance and beautiful music, and the importance of music in the development and well-roundedness of children. As a child I had the opportunity to sing at the Kennedy Center, White House, Carnegie Hall, Constitution Hall and more. We sang with and for Denyce Graves, John Denver, Whitney Houston, US Presidents and First Ladies. The choir provided these experiences that I would not have otherwise had. The WCC established a musical foundation - I studied music and voice in college and sing professionally today.

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

I sang with the choir for ten years and then pursued music and voice in college. I now have a professional singing job; the choir laid the foundation of singing and music appreciation for a lifetime.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

The opportunity to sing in world-class venues, sing for dignitaries and musical legends, and make close friends. My love of beautiful music and singing grew throughout the years and is still a huge part of my life.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

The staff and volunteers are kind and helpful. Their goal is for a fun and meaningful experience for concert-goers.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

Offer scholarship funds to all children who would cherish the opportunity to sing but for whom it is financially out of reach. The choir could bring the message of peace through song by travelling worldwide.

How frequently have you been involved with the organization?
