Raise your voices

Kids between the ages of 4 and 12 have the opportunity to join the Joyful Noise Carson Children’s choir, which kicks off its spring semester on Tuesday, Jan. 21 from 5:15 to 6:15 p.m. at Sierra Place Senior Living—1111 W. College Parkway, Carson City.

There is no cost for joining the choir, but guardians are encouraged to join the Carson City Symphony Association to offset costs like supplies, insurance and the instructor’s stipend.

An educational program of the Carson City Symphony Association, Joyful Noise Carson Children’s Choir was founded in 2017 by Nancy Jones. This year, it is being led by Michelle Powers. The educational program is geared toward helping kids develop strong singing voices, musical skills and performance experience.

The choir will hold a spring concert called “LatinXpressions II” to be played with the Symphony Youth Strings Carson City Symphony on April 23.

The choir is supported in part by public funds through a grant from the Nevada Arts Council and the National Endowment for the Arts and by private donations. For more information and registration forms, contact Michelle Powers at 775-720-1916 or mrees@nevada.unr.edu.
