Welcome to Christ Church
Christ Church Community Youth Choir
The Christ Church Community Youth Choir is about to start its fifth season.  After four years of inspirational leadership, Beth Johanning, founding director, has decided to step down.

Our new director is Jana Ballard, a parishioner and the vocal music teacher at LaGuardia High School.  The assistant director is Kristin Reiersen Parrish, well known to all of us as a daughter of Christ Church and a section leader and soloist in the adult choir.

There will be a parent meeting to kick off the new year today, Thursday, August 28 at 7:30 p.m.  All parents of current choristers and those who want to learn more are invited to attend.

The Christ Church Community Youth Choir and the Christ Church Community Youth Drummers comprise our after school arts enrichment program.  The Choir and Drummers are open for free to Staten Island children.  The program is funded by the Staten Island Foundation, Episcopal Charities, and private donations.

Save the Dates
