Our Youth Choir provides an opportunity for Sunday School children to sing the Divine Liturgy together once a month. On the last Sunday of the month, Mr. Vallas teaches grades 1 through 6 the hymns of the Church, basic singing techniques, and how to follow along during the Divine Liturgy. Reading Western notation is helpful but not required; they will learn the hymns by rote. Once per month (typically on the last Sunday of the month as well) Dr. Marinides teaches students in grades 7 and up byzantine chanting. The Youth Choir sings during Divine Liturgy on the first Sunday of the month. All youth is encouraged to sing on Youth Sundays from the front pews of the family section of the church or join the chanters.
Please check the Church calendar for any updates. If you are interested in having your child join Youth Choir, or for more information, please call the Church office at (716) 882-9485.
