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.
Rock Valley Children’s Choir formed a partnership with the Mendelssohn Performing Arts Center in 2006. Mendelssohn PAC provides office and rehearsal space and processes choir registration.
