Exciting News!! Introducing The Eaglets!

We are very excited to expand our program to be able to reach younger children, particularly those who are in foster care, adopted, or in kinship care.

Having developed our program to meet the needs of older youth, the SOAR! Youth and Adult Choir is now able to expand our programming to meet the needs of the younger child. The developmental needs of the young child are markedly different, and our goal is to meet each child where he/she is. We will accomplish this through a group process, with music and movement being the primary mode of socialization and education.

The Eaglets will be team taught by Joyce Sprengelmeyer and Tina Peterson. Joyce is a retired public school music teacher for grades K- 8. Her favorite part of teaching was working with children’s choirs. Tina has also taught music in the public schools and performed in musicals and opera. Lessons will be based on the methods of Orff, Kodaly, and Dalcroze Eurthymics. We feel so fortunate to be able to offer such talented leadership to our young children.

Our Spring Season will begin on Tuesday, February 3 and runs through May 3.

Choir is on Tuesday nights from 6:00 pm to 7:30 pm. at Unity Church, 3021 S. University Blvd. in Denver. We will be serving dinner at 6:15. One of our founding principles is to serve nutritional healthy foods and educate youth about healthy food choices. The Eaglets Choir will meet in a room that is child friendly, and we invite you to spend the first evening with us and assist your child in becoming comfortable with this new experience. We will be meeting with the parents as a group to discuss programming, expectations, and answer any questions you may have. Currently this program is being offered free of charge and expenses are covered by tax-deductible donations.

Please contact Linda Trantow, 303-946-6733, to enroll your child (ren).

Soar! Youth and Adult Choir Perform at Lighting Ceremony on 11/28

Light the Lights 2014 final

 

The warm winter night and beautiful sunset led to an amazing evening for the SOAR! Youth and Adult Choir at the Lighting of the Lights where they performed three selections before a crowd of more that 15,000 people : “Happy”, “Fireworks” and “Let it Go”.

It was a magical evening that will be long remembered by our youth and adults. You may see pictures of the evening and the Channel 9 News Coverage by clicking the link below.
