Children’s Choirs

Children’s choral music

Our children’s choirs seek to:

  • Teach children about our faith through musical experiences.
  • Brighten the lives of others by sharing our children’s musical gifts.
  • Help each child feel good about himself or herself.
  • Help each child become part of a caring group.
  • Help each child have fun through musical endeavors.
  • Build a solid foundation in the art and discipline of music.

Plymouth’s children’s choirs offer a range of musical opportunities for more than 250 greater Des Moines-area students in kindergarten through sixth grade. Children of all abilities participate in our outstanding choirs, which are led by respected teachers and musicians from the Des Moines community.

Children’s choirs rehearse and sing for worship from September through Spring.
