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.
