About the Rhode Island Children’s Chorus
The Rhode Island Children’s Chorus is a non-profit organization, founded in 2003 by Christine Noel, its Artistic Director and Joyce Wolfe, Executive Director. Based in Rhode Island, choral members include children from over 30 cities and towns in Rhode Island and Massachusetts.
The mission of the Chorus is to provide children with musical instruction, vocal training, and performance opportunities at the highest level. Through the Chorus, singers develop musical ability, vocal skills, and performance readiness in a friendly, non-competitive atmosphere. According to the Chorus, natural talent emerges, and confidence grows as the singer masters a repertoire that includes classical, contemporary, multicultural, and patriotic choral music. Strong bonds of friendship become a part of the choral experience as they participate in this rewarding artistic activity, according to the Chorus.
