The Endolyne Children’s Choir
was founded in September 2003 as a non-audition community choir serving
the greater West Seattle area. Rehearsals are held at St.
Episcopal Church and are directed by Amy Stagno Bokanev. The
choir is divided into
three groups according to age level and ability:
- The Debut Choir Our entry level group, for
- Encore Choir
Our more experienced choristers, in grades 3-5.
- Advanced Ensemble
Our most advanced group, for grades 6-8.
Choristers learn the basic fundamentals of music
theory, vocal training
and performance skills. We work in a fun environment that promotes
music appreciation and confidence through performing. The choir has
performed choral concerts and staged musicals. All boys and girls who
like to sing are welcome – no audition necessary.
