Summer Adventure 2015

Fit to Change the World:
everyBODY included

July 13 – 17

This year’s Summer Adventure is for absolutely everyBODY! It’s about celebrating health and wellness in all that we are.

And sometimes it’s about sitting still or laying down.

Choir Signup

Kyla McCarrel and Lora McManus

I joined the All Saints Youth Choirs when I was four years old and attended fourteen years of weekly rehearsals and early Sunday morning services. This program was my first introduction to the world of classical choral music, and I know that without it, I would not be where I am today. I will be starting my senior year at Chapman University this fall, with a double major in Music Education and Vocal Performance.
