The Rock Valley Children’s Choir was established in 2002 by Leah Baskin and Dean Durst.
Beginning as one small choir, the program has grown to four separate choruses that encompass grades 1-12, now directed by Baskin. Each choir operates during the fall and spring semesters, rehearsing once a week and performing in several concerts per semester.
The Rock Valley Children’s Choirs formed a partnership with the Mendelssohn Performing Arts Center in 2006. Mendelssohn provides office and rehearsal space and processes choir registration.
