About Our Organization
The Seattle Children’s Chorus originated in 1989 when Kris Mason, founder and Artistic Director of the Chorus envisioned a community-based program that would provide a high level of choral training and experience for interested young musicians. Since its founding, the Chorus has been uniquely committed to the preservation of sacred literature for young voices. The Chorus has also provided a rich base of outstanding choral literature from a variety of historical and cultural backgrounds. The Chorus provides performance opportunities for choristers at various community events as well as formal concerts during the regular concert year. The Seattle Children’s Chorus is committed to enriching choral training with tours and music festival experiences for upper level choristers. The first official outside performance for the Chorus was their participation in the Goodwill Games Choir in 1990. Since then the chorus has had many opportunities to participate in festivals and performances regionally, nationally and all over the world, including Europe, South America, and Canada. The Seattle Children's Chorus is pleased to continue offering a unique and challenging multi-level program as we enter our 29th Season. The staff and board of SCC are committed to providing excellent performing events in outstanding venues and cultural experiences.
