Oberlin Choristers is a community-based choral program for children in Kindergarten through twelfth grades. Based in Oberlin, Ohio, Choristers draws its singers from across northeast Ohio, from western Cuyahoga County to Huron County. Choristers trains children in choral music and vocal performance by providing them with an opportunity to improve their vocal and social skills in a variety of choir settings. In addition, Choristers gives children an opportunity to perform in concerts both close to home and in some of the world's greatest musical venues. It is the Choristers’ mission to provide an intense and enjoyable musical training program and to create in its singers a life-long appreciation for the arts.
Each year an average of 15 young people graduate from our high school Youth Chorale. Many go on to pursue careers in music education and performance, but we hope all carry with them a life-long love of music.
