About

The Blacksburg Children's Chorale was established in 2006 as part of the Blacksburg Master Chorale's educational outreach.

Children ages 8-18 are encouraged to audition for the Allegro Choir, Brio Choir, Camerata Choir, or Performance Ensemble. Auditions are held in Spring each year. The Blacksburg Children’s Chorale collaborates with the Blacksburg Master Chorale, as well as presenting its own concert series.


Past highlights for the Blacksburg Children's Chorale include: performing in the annual S.M.I.L.E.S concert at the Lyric Theatre in Blacksburg through the New River Valley Friends of the Roanoke Symphony, auditioning and being a part of the Southern Division and National Honor Choirs through ACDA, performing in American Opera Theater's production of Venus and Adonis, community concerts at Warm Hearth Village and the Smithfield Plantation, as well as the annual lighting of the tree in downtown Blacksburg and many more!


Recent performances include: Once On This Island, Jr. a musical, Powaqqatsi with the Philip Glass Ensemble in the inaugural concert for the Center for the Arts at Virginia Tech, The Three Feathers world premiere children's opera, Broadway Beat, a choral review, performances with the Blacksburg Master Chorale, “Make We Merry” with new Radford Satellite and RU Choirs, RU Two Town Carolers in Radford and Blacksburg, SMILES Concert at Belle Heth Elementary, and the musical, Finian’s Rainbow.
