Notre Dame Children's Choir

About this Artist

Founded in 2013, the Notre Dame Children's Choir provides free music education to over 300 choristers between the ages of one and 17. The choir has toured from Minneapolis to New York City, performed for the National Pastoral Musicians’ Association and the Indiana Music Education Association, and led a TEDx talk entitled What If Children Were More Than Cute?. Their recording of O Emmanuel, an Advent and Christmas cantata for jazz trio and choir by composer J.J. Wright, debuted at #1 on Billboards’ Chart of Traditional Classical Music. This fall the choir released Arturo Sandoval’s Christmas at Notre Dame with ten-time Grammy winning trumpeter Arturo Sandoval. In 2019 the ensemble will tour Texas and the United Kingdom as well as perform for the Hymn Society of the United States and Canada and the Organ Historical Society. Dr. Mark Doerries is the Artistic Director of the Notre Dame Children’s Choir, head of the graduate conducting program at the University of Notre Dame, and editor of the Notre Dame Children's Choir Choral Series with MorningStar Music Publishers.
