Choir School of East Texas is a 501 (c) (3) after-school program that trains boys and girls to sing professionally with adult singers. The program incorporates the style of training that began nearly one thousand years ago and continues today in the great cathedrals in England. Choristers perform a wide range of choral music that spans five centuries and includes text in English, Latin, French, and German. Private piano instruction, music theory, and classical singing instruction are a few of the many benefits offered to choristers.
The Choir School of East Texas takes pride in the development of a diverse student body and is open to children and youth of all faith traditions and backgrounds.
Every student who is accepted into the program receives a full merit scholarship valued at $3000 per year.
Choir School of East Texas has been a member of Royal School of Church Music in America since 2007. For more information about this organization visit their website www.rscmamerica.org
