Rise Up Chorus offers ensembles designed for everyone, no matter your level of experience or age. We rehearse in Central New Jersey, and we perform throughout the region. Our Youth Chorus serves the youth in our community in grades 3-8 and offers mentorship opportunities for high school aged students. Our Adult Chorus serves the adults in our community (age 18+) plus high school aged students in grades 9-12. Do yourself a favor: take a few minutes and learn about our ensembles below! (Note: all choruses rehearse at St. Luke's in Metuchen, located at

Youth Chorus (Grades 3-8)
The Youth Chorus rehearses on Friday afternoons from 5:00-6:30pm September 14 through June 2 (with concerts on December 9, February 23 and 24, and June 2 plus other events throughout the season) and is open to singers in grades 3-8. The Youth Chorus focuses on high-quality, diverse repertoire that spans all styles and time periods and are most appropriate for the age group. Focus of rehearsals will be on vocal technique, ear training (aural skills), movement and folk dance, reading music, and ensemble balance. Members of the Youth Chorus are invited to join us for our Enrichment Program after our Youth Chorus rehearsal.

Adults may join us for all three, just two, or even only one session; however, we ask that singers commit to the entire session. The Adult Chorus focuses on high-quality, diverse repertoire that spans all styles and time periods. Both octavos and major works will be explored and performed. Other events will also be held throughout the season. Focus of rehearsals will be on vocal technique, ear training (aural skills), movement, reading music, and ensemble balance. Musicianship classes will be held before rehearsals.
