Singing together provides a way of building musical skills while forming meaningful and lasting friendships. The Community School of the Arts offers three choirs for students in third through twelfth grade. The choirs have the incredible opportunity to perform in Sauder Concert Hall each Fall and Spring, and each Christmas season, the Shout for Joy choir is invited to participate in the Festival of Carols with the Goshen College ensembles. Auditions are held at the Music Center each fall and spring: for more information about how you or a friend can get involved, contact CSA Director Mary Rose Norell at (574) 535-7849 or
