Crescendo Community Chorus strives to reach as many children in the Spokane area as possible--to give them an opportunity to use their voice in making a difference in the community and enriching their lives personally and as musicians. We work to strengthen the musical appreciation of the choral arts received by youth in the Spokane community by inspring our singers with the highest quality choral literature of a wide diversity, opening their ears to sounds from the entire human experience.

Why should my child sing in choir?
  • Choral music has the ability to change individuals as they learn about culture, language, art, and community, teaching empathy, compassion, and respect towards those who are different from themselves.
  • It demands a level of excellence that stretches each singer to work hard as an individual while achieving a common goal as a group through teamwork and discipline.
  • Performing teaches young people about taking risks and dealing with anxiety, contributing to positive mental health.
  • Along with each of these valuable opportunities, Crescendo Community Chorus provides a safe place for self-expression-where youth from different income levels, neighborhoods, lifestyles, and traditions can come together and feel like they are part of something special, helping young people develop cognitive, social, and emotional learning skills to become vibrant and productive citizens in the Spokane community.
