Based on the legendary model of the Battenkill Chorale, Hubbard Hall is thrilled to launch its first-ever Youth Chorale in fall 2015.  This group will rehearse and perform as part of professional performances in the Hall and have opportunities to tour throughout the region to schools, community centers and retirement communities.  

Are you a teen who loves to sing? Whether you sing solos in the school talent show, rock out in the shower, or prefer to just sing along to the radio in the car, this is a great opportunity for you to learn more and share  your talent with the world! Join the Youth Chorale and become part of a team of singers that will learn the in’s and out’s of vocal performance while preparing to sing beautiful music in front of live audiences!  Students will learn to read music and perform as a group while bolstering their confidence and their abilities to express themselves through rhythm and melody.
