The Choir School of Newport County was founded in 2014.
An innovative partnership of Emmanuel Church, Trinity Church and the Zabriskie Memorial Church of St. John the Evangelist, Newport, for all of Newport County
Forming Lives of Character and Service through the joy and discipline of choral music, enabled by a unified curriculum and the faculty resources of several participating institutions. The idea is hardly new, but the unique partnership here is…enabling overlapping schedules and creative teaching approaches to fast-track your child to success.
The ensembles of The Choir School give boys and girls a special opportunity for developing the values of self-esteem, a positive attitude, respect, team spirit, discipline, and service to others. Making music at the highest level, ultimately alongside adult singers, with professional, adult expectations, is the vehicle for developing these gifts. Singers in intergenerational choirs gain experience and confidence to meet many of the challenges of their future lives.
