Western Plains Children's Choir

Children's Choir

Our Story

Western Plains Children’s Choirs exist for the purpose of providing children the opportunity to develop lifelong singing and musicianship skills.  We provide a supportive learning environment within which members develop individually as well as communally.  Singers in our choirs make lasting friendships and have fun while building music reading skills, vocal skills, musical artistry, choral diction, performance expertise, and a love of beautiful choral singing.

Our Mission

Western Plains Opera Company's mission as an organization is to blend the best of professional, community, and Minot State University resources to produce outstanding opera in the north central plains and to foster in local youths the love of good singing and good singing practices.
