How to Grow a Youth Choir
Every rehearsal has the potential to feel like a festival, but it takes time to cultivate and grow a choir. Whether you start from scratch or already have a core group, growth must always be nurtured. Gaining enthusiasm and commitment from your community, your pastor, and the children is essential. Director Linda Opaleski will share her recipe for attracting singers (both male and female) into your choir and keeping them there with the support of your families, parish and pastor. Father James Conlon will give his perspective on the importance of Catholic youth choirs from a pastor’s perspective. Both will share how being active members of Pueri Cantores has helped with choir growth and retention.
