Children's Choir Information

Children's Choirs

St. John Brebeuf Children's Choirs are well established in the parish community, with 25-40 members in varying years. We sing sacred music of different styles, dependent on the season, from chants, hymns, and Masses to Taize, Gospel, and contemporary sounds.

We have sung in seven different languages. Once or twice a year our Children's Choirs participate in choir activities outside of the church or on the LIVE AT SJB Concert Series.

Children's Choirs are open to children in grades 3-8.

Registration is below.

Questions? Contact Ewa Kowcz via email, or leave a message for her at the Parish Office, 847-966-8145.
