What is the Tonka District Children’s Choir?

The Tonka District Children’s Choirs serves children who love to sing in third, fourth, fifth and sixth grade from each of the six elementary schools across the Minnetonka School District, MME and MMW.  Membership in the choir fosters musicality through performance and bridges friendships across the district.  There is a place for everyone in the choir!

Ensembles

Core Choir: Includes fourth, fifth and sixth grade boys and girls from each of the six elementary schools, MME and MMW.  Singers in this choir will develop singing and performing skills using choral music and individual instruction. The goals will be improved technique and a musically satisfying concert while creating a space where all voices are celebrated.

Select Choir: Includes fourth, fifth, and sixth grade girls and boys from each of the six elementary schools, MME and MMW.  This is an auditioned group with a higher level of performance and rehearsal expectations.  This group will cater to the dedicated and experienced young singer.
