The Oxford Children’s Chorus (OCC) aims to build musicians through collaborative music-making. The select singers in grades 3-7 build music literacy skills that will last throughout their lifetimes. Each rehearsal includes time developing music reading and writing skills. Concerts highlight the singer’s musical development and their production of beautiful, expressive singing. We have three options:


Training Choir
Description:The Training Choir (TC) is is our main singing group and aims to build singing skills for every child who wants to participate.
Requirements:  Open to new and returning students in grades 3-6. New singers will need to come to the audition this Monday, 8/28–ask them to drop in between 4 and 6pm. All who audition will be accepted into this choir. Returning singers do NOT need to re-audition, just come to the first rehearsal 9/11 at 4:00pm!
Rehearsals: Mondays from 4:00-5:15 in the music building.
Cost: $40/semester

Honor Choir
Description: The Honor Choir (HC) is new group that aims to provide a place for singers who have more experience and desire to do more difficult music, to be challenged, and to be around others with similar interests. The honor choir will provide more rigorous musical opportunities and will be developing musicianship at a higher level and rate than the training choir.
Requirements: We ask that all returning and new singers audition for consideration in the HC (auditions are Monday, 8/28, drop in between 4 and 6pm). This group is only for students in fourth grade or higher. Students must pass an audition at a more accomplished level to be accepted in the HC. Past students in the OCC will automatically be placed in the TC unless they choose to audition for the HC.
Rehearsals: Mondays from 4:00-5:15 in the music building.
Cost: $40/semester

Oxford String Project
Description: Has your child been interested in learning an instrument? This is a great way to get started. The Oxford String Project (OSP) aims to serve our community by providing a way for young students to get involved in strings (violin, viola, cello, and bass). All students who are interested in participating will be accepted into this new program!
Requirements: Involvement in the OSP will require an audition (Tuesday, 8/29, drop in between 4 and 6pm), immediately followed by an instrument fitting. New students are welcome and DO NOT need any string experience or even an instrument! We have several good-quality, loaner instruments available.
Rehearsals: Tuesdays from 4:00-5:15 in the music building
Cost: $40/semester
