Our 35th annual Spring Concert will feature all three groups of the Santa Rosa Children’s Choral Academy.
(Cancelled due to COVID-19 Shelter-In-Place orders)
Our three groups, Training, Intermediate, and Concert, are holding rehearsals online until it’s safe to gather together again. We will take our cue from the Santa Rosa public schools, and reopen when they do. We will sing, have fun with music theory, and make virtual recordings — all from home!
Training and Intermediate Groups meet for rehearsals (via Zoom) on Mondays from 4 to 5:30 pm. Concert Group meets for rehearsals (via Zoom) on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 4 to 5:30 pm. For more information, email us or call 707-527-8813.
If you know someone who loves to sing, NOW IS THE TIME TO CONTACT US. The Santa Rosa Children’s Choral Academy can still be a place of solace for our children during these unpredictable times.
Children from 7 to 12 are welcome and encouraged to join us. Call 707-527-8813 or email for more information. Come join us in song!
The Training and Intermediate Groups focus on instruction in music theory and musicianship, training youth to read music and to sing music in several parts. The Training Group sings in unison, the Intermediate Group sings in two parts.
The Concert Group sings a much larger repertoire than the Training and Intermediate Groups, in many parts and languages. They also have a number of performance opportunities each semester, including tour opportunities in the U.S. and abroad.
Participation in the Santa Rosa Children’s Choral Academy is for boys and girls from ages 7 through high school. To preserve the soprano and alto ranges of the Chorus, boys may remain members until their voices change.
New members, with no prior singing experience and between the ages of 7-12, are welcome to audition. Auditions are held in early June, late August and early January.
The Santa Rosa Children’s Chorus was founded in 1984 by Juelle Hinman to create a professional level, non-denominational chorus for the children of Sonoma County. In 2017, the name was changed to the Santa Rosa Children’s Choral Academy to better reflect the rigorous musical academic and performance training.
