The West Michigan Symphony Children’s Choir is a high-quality choral group for children ages 8 – 11. The Children’s Choir provides choral training and experience to school-aged children throughout the Lakeshore communities. The WMS Children’s Choir performs at West Michigan Symphony concerts and independent concerts throughout the community.
The ensemble is directed by Mrs. Beth Slimko, an experienced music teacher and choral director. Mrs. Slimko currently directs the North Muskegon Public School choir program and is the vocal music specialist for elementary music.
Members are selected through an audition process held each spring and fall. Rehearsals take place at The Block, 360 W. Western Ave., Muskegon, 2nd floor.

The program is made possible by a grant from the Raymond C and Evelyn P Alstrom Memorial Fund of the Community Foundation for Muskegon County.
No preparation necessary! Children will be asked to match pitch and sing phrases taught onsite by music director Beth Slimko. Children’s audition performance will be evaluated according to their ability to match pitch, sing a short sequence of music and follow instructions.
