Our Mission & Ensembles

CLC Logo 2(small)

O

ur goal is to create engaged, skilled, and literate singers who possess an understanding of the structures of music; to decipher the social, historical, and geographical contexts in which music is and has been written; and to practice various skills in the spirit of collaboration and community

Our personal mission as educators is threefold: to facilitate students in developing themselves into mentally and spiritually vital young people; to foster a culture of security, encouraging students to take chances,  grow, and evolve, both as people and as musicians; and to use the study of vocal music to view the world and themselves from new perspectives, fostering a life-long love of music.
