The arts reflect the sophistication and enlightenment of all societies, and the Central Valley finds a treasure in the Bach Children\'s Choir program. These young people receive extraordinary training that is not only vital to their development as well-rounded citizens, but is crucial to the cultural growth of our metropolitan area.

Your choir sings with such beauty, precision, rich tone and wonderful intonation. It was really a joy to watch and listen to the musicality oozing from your performance. Most impressively, the repertoire matched the caliber of this excellent ensemble. Keep up the great work you are doing!

The Bach Children's Choir is one of Fresno's best kept secrets! My fifth grade daughter is starting her 3rd year and it is the highlight of her week! Not only has she learned to appreciate the beauty of choral music, but her self-confidence has grown by leaps and bounds. Talented directors bring out the best in each child, resulting in a choir of angels. I highly recommend it to anyone with a child that loves to sing!

I was in the Bach Children's Choir for six years. I was even there back when it was split into the Cantate Girl Choir and Bach Boy Choir. I loved every moment of it! This was the best choral experience that I've ever had, and I've been in a few other choirs. We sang so many wonderful pieces of music from all over the world, and even got to travel to several places outside of California and even outside of the United States! All of the experiences with this choir are great memories that I'll remember forever. Valerie Quiring is an amazing director and I learned so much from her. She really helped push me to become a great choral singer. I have continued on with choir in college, and couldn't have made it here without Mrs. Quiring!
