The Paducah Symphony Children’s Chorus is the only children’s chorus in our region to perform with a professional orchestra. The group consists of two ensembles, the PSO Children’s Chorus (grades 3-7) and the PSO Youth Chorus (grades 8-12) and are chosen by audition to perform under the direction of Dr. Bradley Almquist and Samantha Veal.

Performances include the PSO Christmas Concert, a Winter Concert, and a Spring Concert. In addition, the PSO Children’s Chorus has received an invitation to perform at the Kentucky Music Educators Association’s Professional Development Conference in Louisville in February 2017. They will also perform at various community club meetings and events.

The next auditions will take place at Broadway United Methodist Church in Paducah in early January.

In February 2012, the Youth and Children’s Chorus was invited to Frankfort, Ky. to perform at West Kentucky Thank You Night. The group toured the Capitol, sang prior to a Senate session, and got to meet Governor Steve Beshear! Below is a photo from their performance and video from Murray State University’s RoundAbout U.
