Under the direction of Duane Beck & accompanist Michelle Kruse this 40 member auditioned chorus from throughout the region will perform a wide range of music from folk spirituals to classics.
The Junior Choral Society was founded in 1983 by Sandra Frey Stegman. This select treble ensemble of children in grades 4 through 9 is establishing a solid performance practice and choral repertoire from which to grow and expand.

JCS has performed joint concerts with the Bowling Green State University Chorus, Columbus Children’s Choir and The Toledo Opera Children’s Chorus. The group is well known in the Northwest Ohio area through local presentations.
