Hancock County Children's Choir

The Hancock County Children’s Choir is a musical ensemble for treble voices based in Greater Hancock County but open to all 2-5 grade children in the surrounding area.

The program’s mission is to provide an educational experience for area children who wish to explore singing in a group at an age when choral experiences are limited in the schools. The Choir stands as an opportunity for students to develop relationships with others with similar interests and gain a greater understanding of how to use their voices in an ensemble. The Choir is directed by Celia Stockton and Bev Roby is the accompanist.
