Roane Choral Society Children/Youth
Each season, we choose a concert to feature our RCS Children's Choir. Invitations are extended to local schools each season in the hopes of collaborating with the adult chorus on a concert project. Most recently, singers have included students from local elementary schools, including Midtown, Bowers, and Ridge View Elementary Schools. Director Brenda Luggie attends some regular rehearsals for the ensembles to prepare them for the performance. The 2019-2020 season "A Tapestry of Carols" concert highlighted the Ridge View Elementary School singers.
High school age students are welcome to join the adult chorus with the approval of the director. A short audition/interview can be scheduled at the beginning of the rehearsal period for any concert of the season. We endeavor to be a multi-generational ensemble and encourage the participation of young people who will carry on the musical legacy of our community.
