Children & Music

JrChoir_Christmas_0054_cropPCUM offers children and teenagers of every age and stage the chance to sing and take their rightful place in the center of this worshiping family of faith--offering their unique gifts, leading the whole community in worship, and gaining experience in relating as individuals to God, to fellow worshipers of all generations, and to themselves.  

The Joyful Noise Choir is for PCUM's youngest singers, from Preschoolers through First Graders, who sing and lead the whole congregation in worship on special Sundays throughout the year.  Because, for Christians, music is "the language, of prayer," the Joyful Noise Choir rehearses twice a month as a core experience of their education in PCUM's Church School program.  They are led by Denise Silecchia who holds a Bachelor's degree in vocal performance from Montclair State University, and has being teaching private voice for over 25 years. She is also PCUM's soprano soloist and section leader.
