About the Choirs

The Leelanau Children’s Choir and Leelanau Youth Ensemble were founded in 1992 and are currently celebrating 20 years of vocal music excellence. 

Our mission statement, “Changing the Future One Voice at a Time," reflects our goal to train children to sing beautifully according to the highest standards, to integrate musical literacy and performance practice, and to return the gift of song to our community.  We foster the personal and social growth of our members and promote their sense of self-esteem, self-discipline, accomplishment, and pride. The youth that participate in the choirs discover new friendships and build their musical resumes, preparing them for future opportunities.  Many of our alumni are successful college or professional musicians today. 

Any Leelanau County youth who wishes to sing is eligible to join.  Members are chosen by private audition with performances occurring in the winter and spring.  Leelanau Children’s Choir members are 8 years old through 8th grade.  Leelanau Youth Ensemble members are in 9th through 12th grade.

Our choirs are directed by Margaret Bell and accompanied by pianist Becky Nies.

Please call Margaret Bell if you would like more information or to schedule an audition!  883-SING.
