Glowing Hearts Charity is thrilled to announce the creation of the Simcoe Youth Choir! This program is all about fun, community, and connection! Participants will love learning contemporary pieces in a variety of styles, tailored to the singers in the group. Sign-up today!



This 12-week community choir is inclusive and open to all children in grades 3 to 8. If and when there is enough interest, our hope is to split into two or more choirs.


When and Where?

Rehearsals will take place at Hillcrest Public School in the library on Mondays from January 23rd to May 1st from 6:30-7:30pm (doors open at 6:15pm). There will be no rehearsals on school holidays. If a rehearsal is cancelled due to inclement weather, an extra rehearsal will be scheduled for May 8th.



$60 for the 12-week program. Glowing Hearts Charity will cover the cost for those needing assistance.



  • Willingness to learn, participate, be respectful, and attend rehearsals to prepare for our final performance (date TBD)

  • No previous experience or music reading ability needed

  • No auditions
