Dallas Symphony Children’s Chorus

Dallas Symphony Children's Chorus

The DSO has created the new Dallas Symphony Children’s Chorus that builds upon the rich history and practice of choral singing established in the Greater Dallas region, including the Dallas Symphony Chorus through its over forty years of service. The DSCC will provide a multi-tiered choral curriculum for children and youth grades 4-12, with a continued emphasis on artistic excellence and representation of Dallas’ diverse communities.

Welcome to the Dallas Symphony Children’s Chorus!

Acceptance letters have been sent out and we look forward to welcoming our singers to rehearsals in August 2022.

Tuition Assistance is available for qualified families. Please return your Tuition Assistance application to childrenschorus@dalsym.com no later than June 30th, 2022.

A Welcome Packet with all pertinent information will be sent to you after the 1st of July.

Finally, we are thrilled to announce Ms. Ellie Lin as our Interim Artistic Director. We are excited that your student will have the opportunity to sing under her guidance and artistic excellence, and to work with the Dallas Symphony Orchestra.

Welcome to our family of outstanding musicians!
