Introducing an exciting new opportunity for young singers of the Turkish-American community!

Our Children’s Choir is growing into a new format with more opportunities to perform at national and social events this year!

Among the most important elements that bind every society together are music, choirs, and children. Choir  practices and performances unite American-Turkish children and their parents who accompany them  with excitement.

We are excited to continue a musical tradition, grow our music program, and welcome young singers and high school leaders of our Turkish-American community.
