Rutgers Children’s Choir

RCA is excited to bring back the Rutgers Children’s Choir for the Fall 2022 semester!

For more than a quarter of a century, the Rutgers Children’s Choir has provided age-appropriate vocal training to pre-college students, grades K-12. All choirs provide an opportunity for young singers to perform choral music with peers who share an interest in singing. The choirs also serve as a learning lab for Mason Gross collegiate music education students. There are three divisions within the Rutgers Children’s Choir: Little Knights, Choristers, and Scarlet Singers.

Little Knights - Grades 1-3 (ages 6-9)

No formal evaluation is necessary; placement is determined by age.

Little Knights learn the basics of singing in an age-appropriate, fun manner! A family singing presentation and social event concludes each semester. This program provides excellent preparation for the next level of choir study.

Choristers - Grades 4-7 (ages 10-13)

No formal evaluation is necessary; placement is determined by age.

Children learn to sing and read music through exposure to age-appropriate repertoire and games designed to develop musicianship. This program provides excellent preparation for the next level of choir study. Each semester concludes with a performance for family and friends.

Scarlet Singers - Grades 8-12 (ages 14-18)

Placement is determined on the first day of class.

Scarlet Singers provides an opportunity for mature musical study in an environment that nurtures the development of leadership skills. Members demonstrate a commitment to the art of choral singing and to achieving a high level of musicianship as individuals and as members of an ensemble. Each semester concludes with a performance for family and friends.
