The International Virtual Children's Choir
Who are we?
We are a group of passionate young singers (ages 8-17) from all over the world engaging with both classical and musical theatre repertoire in a virtual setting. We were established post-COVID (after the striking success of our first International Virtual Choir Camp) to break down geographic barriers and enable children around the world to join their voices in song.
We believe that music enriches, heals, and persists despite obstacles. Nothing can keep us from making music together!
Our summer session begins Sat, July 11th. We rehearse every Saturday from 9-10 AM PT.
What do we do?
Meet the Conductor!
Dr. Erica Glenn
DMA (ASU), EdM (Harvard)
Conductor: Phoenix Singing
Former Conductor: ASU Women's Chorus
In addition to meeting once a week to build our musical skills, strengthen vocal technique, and rehearse repertoire, we present a live virtual concert at least once every season and bring music to the elderly, isolated, and infirm via platforms like social media and Zoom.
For an additional fee, students are able to enroll in private voice instruction with the conductor.
Who can be involved?
What is the cost?
How do I register?
Any child between the ages of 8 and 17 who loves to sing is welcome to join (no audition)!
We believe that diversity and wide-umbrella experiences benefit all participants and that excellence derives not from being exclusive or elitist but from being intentional, learning-oriented, and joyful.
Summer session (July 11 - Aug 15; six weeks) is $95 per child. (Sheet music is included in the cost.)
Families with more than one child in the choir receive a $10 discount per child.
Private 30-minute lessons with the conductor are $35 each.

We can't wait to create beautiful music together! For examples of the songs that came out of our one-week camp in June, check out our facebook page (www.facebook.com/virtualchoircamp).
