The Central Jersey Youth Chorale program is aligned with the Count Basie Theatre’s goal to provide multiple arts experiences to our community’s children. The program is free to all students, and runs from October through June under the musical direction of Kristopher Zook, a local conductor, composer and vocal music education at Red Bank Regional High School. Rehearsals are held on Mondays and Wednesdays from 5-6PM. There are currently 35 members of the chorale, hailing from nearly a dozen different Monmouth County schools. Rehearsals are currently being held at Count Basie Theatre.
Findings from the 2009 Chorus Impact Study conducted by Chorus America indicate that choral singing has multiple, positive effects on childhood development. The study notes that Choral singing can enhance ones intellectual, emotional, and spiritual development in many ways.
Our goal as educators is to instill a passion, appreciation and love of the arts. Besides enhancing one’s perspective and interpersonal skills such as communication, cooperation and creative problem solving, arts education is truly a magical elixir that raises one’s self–esteem, self-efficacy and confidence.
