PACIFIC CHORALE’S AWARD-WINNING EDUCATION PROGRAMS ARE A CENTRAL PART OF ITS MISSION.
Our drive to inspire curiosity and a love of music has led us to create many innovative opportunities for lifelong learning in the choral art. In 2002, the Orange County Department of Education presented the Chorale with their Outstanding Contributions to Education Award. Chorus America, the national service organization for professional choruses, recognized Pacific Chorale’s programs as exemplary in 1997 with their inaugural Educational Outreach Award, and again in 2015 for Pacific Chorale Academy.
Offered to students in grades 2-6 at selected partner sites, Pacific Chorale Academy has been recognized nationally for its unique combination of music education and community building. As part of a choir, students learn persistence, teamwork, and responsibility along with musical skills, all in a joyful and positive setting.
Choral Camp, presented in partnership with Cal State Fullerton, gives high school students an intensive week to hone their vocal and musical skills with professional artist-educators.
Intro and Passage to the Arts provides hundreds of free concert tickets annually to students and members of the community in partnership with schools and social service organizations.
The perennially popular Choral Festival draws hundreds of choral singers from all over Southern California and beyond for a weekend of rehearsals culminating in a free public performance.
