Children’s Voices of Southern Maryland provides children with music education and performance opportunities that foster performance excellence and collaboration at the highest artistic level, nurturing individual development and creating a foundation for lifelong success. The Choir enriches the cultural fabric of Southern Maryland through the transformative power of music.
We are passionate about providing the highest quality of music education while maintaining an environment of encouragement, kindness, peer support, and unity. Music literacy is taught at every level and includes healthy vocal technique, pitch matching, sight reading music, and working well as a group. For our choristers, that translates to confidence, poise, and cooperation.
CVSM teaches music education through creative rehearsal techniques that engage the whole child in healthy vocal production and music literacy as well as encouraging self-confidence and a sense of community and belonging. The Choir also emphasizes well-supported head-voice singing, which is a natural entrance into healthy singing that can evolve into any style once well-developed. CVSM choristers also gain leadership skills during their time in the choir that are nurtured through opportunities in rehearsal and, at the older levels, through formal leadership roles. Because of their training, choristers have the tools to pursue a wide variety of musical outlets, and the confidence to pursue their goals!
