Students who love to sing and meet new friends from around the community should not miss the opportunity to join the Lee University Children's Chorale. Registration and auditions will be held each Tuesday in January from 5 to 5:30 p.m. in the Curtsinger Music Building, room 200. No appointment is necessary to audition.

Lee University Children's Chorale is a community choir, established in 1996 to provide supplemental singing experiences for children grades 1 through 12.

Focusing on vocal development, musical training and performance, the enrichment program is directed by Joy Gibbons.

Gibbons has more than 25 years of experience as a music educator in the private sector.

Most recently, she was the director of choral music at Hilger Higher Learning as well as the founder of C.H.I.M.E. (Chattanooga Homeschoolers in Music Education) and currently serves as music director of First Lutheran Church in Chattanooga.

Gibbons asks that students in grades 4 through 12 be prepared to sing a familiar song of their choice at the auditions. Children grades 1 through 3 are not required to audition.

Rehearsals are held each Tuesday evening. Grades 1 through 3 meet from 5:30 to 6:15 p.m. and are directed by Victoria Betts. Grades 4 to 6 meet from 5:30 to 7 p.m. and grades 7 to 12 meet from 7:30 to 9 p.m., directed by Joy Gibbons.
