PLYMOUTH — The Children's Choir a new program for children 8-14, will begin rehearsals on Oct. 4 at the United Church of Christ in Plymouth. Rehearsals will be held on Thursdays from 6-7 p.m. The cost is $80 per child ($10/class) and includes music. Performances will be held at the end of each session.
The Children's Choir was formed to provide opportunities for the children of Plymouth and surrounding communities to participate in a quality choral music education program outside of the classroom. The children will work with an experienced children’s choral director and accompanist in a positive learning environment. A choral music education is a vehicle to help children develop excellence in musicianship, self-confidence, social awareness and academic skills while setting the stage for continued active involvement in choral singing throughout their lives. Students who love to sing and are committed to learning are encouraged to participate.
The program will be led by Choir Director Jane Berlin Pauley and Accompanist Noelle Beaudin.
Pauley earned a bachelor of music degree in voice performance from the Mason Gross School of the Arts and her master’s degree from the New England Conservatory of Music. She has been on the faculty of Concord Community
Music School since 2000 and taught voice at St. Paul’s School from 2002-2006.
Beaudin attended The Boston Conservatory of Music, majoring in composition and piano performance. She currently teaches piano and composition from her studio in Center Sandwich, is the music and choir director for the Unitarian Universalist Society of Laconia and music teacher at the Sandwich Children's Center. She is the founder and executive director of the New Hampshire Independent School of Music in Sandwich and coaches the NHISOM Chamber Ensembles.
