FAIRFIELD COUNTY, Conn. -- Voices will sing a little louder now that the Fairfield County Children's Choir has received a state grant to help fund the 300-member organization.
According to State Sen. Marilyn Moore (D-Bridgeport), the organization has been awarded $5,014 from the state Department of Economic and Community Development's Office of the Arts.
“The Fairfield County Children’s Choir is a wonderful resource for the children of Trumbull and neighboring towns,” said Moore. “Educating our kids in the arts and music is critical to their education and development. I want to thank Commissioner Smith and the Department of Economic and Community Development for making this funding possible.”
The Fairfield County Children’s Choir is a community-based choral program made up of 300 children in grades four through 12 from communities in and around Fairfield County.
The program provides instruction in vocal technique, choral technique, music literacy and the appreciation of music through the practice and performance of great choral repertoire.
