Venturing outside the bounds of traditional choir training, the Kingsway Children’s Choir & Drum Ensemble is a unique, liberating choral experience for children aged 7 and up. Directed by a professional music educator with extensive choral conducting experience, the choir explores a vast repertoire spanning world music, folk songs and classic choral works. Weekly rehearsals at the Kingsway Conservatory of Music are an invigorating musical workout encompassing voice and body warm-ups, vocal technique, singing skills and drum circle (each chorister receives an African Djembé drum to keep). For more experienced singers, the auditioned Kingsway Chamber Singers offers an enriched, multi-part, challenging choral experience. Throughout a 30-week season, both choirs take their music to various stages including festivals, recitals, and corporate and community events.
