Spring 2020 Update

Seasons greetings,

Due to continued circumstances surrounding the Coronavirus, it is with great sadness that the Grand Valley Children’s Choir will be postponing the spring 2020 season. 

Many factors have played a role in this decision; including building clearance, group-singing, and concert restrictions.

At the end of the day, we do not feel as though we can provide the quality and enriching experience that our singers and families deserve, which is what makes our program so special for everyone involved. 

In hopes that we can return in the fall, we ask that all singers wanting to return and singers interested in auditioning send us a quick email. 

In your email, please provide the name of your singer(s), their age/grade level, and the best email and phone contact information. 

Email: gvcchoir@gmail.com 

Please continue to watch our website and our Facebook page for updated information. 

… 

We appreciate everyone’s understanding and loving support during these unprecedented times. 

Wishing everyone a wonderful holiday season and a happy New Year!

With love,

Maddie McBride, GVCC Director

Ben McLam, GVCC Assistant Director

GVCC 2020-2021 Season Update

This is an official update regarding the GVCC’s 2020-2021 Season:

To our Grand Valley Children’s Choir Community,

Our program’s highest priority is to provide a safe environment for every family and child involved while teaching the fundamentals of proper singing techniques and fulfilling children’s lives through singing.

With the status of COVID-19 and the ever-changing health protocols in place for the community and the arts, we have come to the difficult decision to put our 2020-2021 Season on-hold until the New Year with expectations to reevaluate conditions at that time. This decision was not made lightly, and we have considered many options. However, we do not believe that the rehearsal restrictions, concert absence, and risk will fulfill our families in the way that they truly deserve.

If able to return for a spring season, we expect that it will look differently than our usual yearly routine in terms of auditions, rehearsals, and performances. We have a few ideas of alternative ways we can get children singing and involved in our program that would preserve everyone’s safety and comfort-level.

We appreciate all of your kind support given these unfortunate circumstances and wish that we did not have to come to this decision.

We will be updating everyone as the New Year approaches with a hopeful plan of moving forward. Until then, we wish everyone love, safety, and happiness.

In positive news, both myself and Ben McLam have some new additions coming!

My family and I will be welcoming a sweet baby girl this October and Ben’s family is expecting twins in the New Year! ♥

All our love!

Keep singing!!

Sincerely,

Maddie McBride, GVCC Director
