About Rejoice

The Rejoice Children’s Choir was formed in 2004.  Students in grades 3-5 from all over Elkhart and St. Joseph Counties earn membership in this outstanding choral ensemble for children through successful audition. Participants sing a variety of repertoire and learn about the art of choral music, healthy vocal technique, and musicianship. Rejoice had the honor of performing Carl Orff’s Carmina Burana with the Goshen High School and Goshen College Combined Choirs in 2013. With multiple performances every year in the phenomenal Sauder Concert Hall of the Goshen College Music Center, the Rejoice Children’s Choir and its director Kristin Kauffman offer students an unforgettable musical experience.
