Delta Youth Choir

Delta Youth Choir is looking for new members to join

The Delta Youth choir is part of the Delta Choral Society and it is a non-profit organization.

The choir provides teens with the opportunity to cultivate an appreciation for music and share their talents with the community. The Delta youth choir will teach their members proper singing techniques and encourage them to explore their love of music in a fun but structured environment.

The Delta Youth choir will perform a selection of songs from traditional choral music to current pop music hits. They will perform at the Delta Choral Society’s end of term concert (May and December) held at South Delta Baptist Church.
