You can’t get to Carnegie Hall without practice. The Children’s Chorus of Greater Dallas may know this better then anyone. During every one of their rehearsals each performer works hard to ensure every note and voice comes together in perfect harmony.

“It’s amazing when you get so many kids in a room that have different voices,” said singer David Holmes.

Becoming a member of this chorus represents years of hard work and dedication to music and performing. Each member is hand selected through auditions and taught to sing at their full potential.

“Sometimes if we don’t know a song, it may not seem like everything is all together, at least at first but when everybody has their part and everybody knows what they’re doing it’s kind of an out of body experience,” said singer Liam McShane.

The Children’s Chorus of Greater Dallas has performed for crowds all over the world for over a decade. During that time each child learns to succeed in as well as outside the chorus.

“Generally speaking they do better in school,” said Executive Director of CCGD Terry Harley. “They’re more social. They’re more likely to go to college, and graduate and more likely to become involved citizens.”

Students rehearse during the school year and will perform in several different concerts throughout the year.

Hello DFW my name is Austin Wright and I'm proud to say that I was born and raised right here In North Texas. I come from a huge family that is made up of some of the most remarkable people I've ever had the privilege of knowing. They say everything is bigger in Texas and the Wright family is no exception. Dreams as we know are an important part of life but in order to truly sleep sound at night we must turn our dreams into reality and live them. Aviation has always been a dream of mine and after graduating from Eastern Hills in 2001 I hit the ground running and eventually earned my wings. For the past six years I've piloted corporate jets all over the world. My travels have allowed me to walk the streets of some amazing cities. However no matter where I am Dallas will always be home. Like flying broadcasting has always been another passion of mine. I'm excited to be a member of this very talented news team and I look forward to upholding our long standing tradition of bringing the DFW community positive, upbeat news.

  1. Joyce Alcorn Says:

    The Children’s Chorus of Greater Dallas was not only an important part of our daughter’s 5th through 12th grade years, but also had a great influence on what she would choose to do in college and where she chooses to head in life. She is now in her senior year at the Oberlin Conservatory of Music majoring in vocal performance. Her goal is not only to experience the world of opera, but to share her music somehow as Ms Nott & Ms. Henson are doing. We are forever grateful for her experience with the chorus.
