about endolyne

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. John's Episcopal Church and are directed by Amy Stagno Bokanev. The choir is divided into three groups according to age level and ability:

  1. The Debut Choir  Our entry level group, for grades K-2.
  2. Encore Choir  Our more experienced choristers, in grades 3-5.
  3. 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.
