The Christchurch Children's choir is the CSM Sings! project's new choir.  This performance-based choir is for children aged 8 to 12.  It gives children the opportunity to sing with other children from all over the city.  The repertoire and techniques the children learn help promote better singing, harmonising, musical skills, understanding and appreciation.  It will enhance any child's school choir activities and can be taken alongside our other vocal programmes.  A regular schedule of performances highlights the choir's activities.
