Youth Chorus
Grades 4 - 8

The Greatland Youth Chorus provides boys and girls, grades 4 - 8, with an exceptional choral music experience. Singers learn vocal technique, sight-singing, ear-training, and performance technique while striving for musical excellence and enjoying a variety of high-quality choral music. This is a “treble clef” chorus, therefore, boys must have unchanged voices. The semester will culminate with a performance recital for family and friends.

about the director.

Jessica Swan loves bringing young people together to make music. She believes that young musicians love a challenge and are inspired when they can perform beautifully together. And the friendships formed by working together are very special and supportive. This is why she formed the Greatland Youth Chorus for homeschool students who would otherwise not have the opportunity to make music with their peers. 

Jessica Swan received a B.S. in Music Education from Asbury University and an M.S. in Music Education from the University of Illinois. She has led various music groups, including children’s, teen and adult choirs, instrumental ensembles and theatrical productions. She served as the Music Director for The Salvation Army in Indiana for nine years giving direction to the music and worship arts programs, including a residential summer music camp, and music leadership training. She taught music at St. Gabriel School in Indianapolis, Indiana where members of her children’s choir received honors at both District Solo and Ensemble Competitions and the Catholic Youth Organization Music Competitions.  Jessica served eighteen years in leadership of the worship arts ministry team at Crosspoint Community Church. She and her husband, Brian, have lived in Anchorage, Alaska for twenty-three years. They love getting outdoors and enjoying all that the "Greatland" of Alaska has to offer, traveling, as well as visiting their two young adult sons (whom they homeschooled for eight years).
