Nurture your child’s musicality, social skills and self-confidence with Forest Voices Choir!  Forest Voices is a non-auditioned singing circle where kids sing for the love of it.  We teach singing for the whole child. Embodied singing.  Singing from the heart!


Participation in a vibrant musical community of kids who love to sing

Learn heart-opening songs that center compassion, equity and Earth stewardship.

A full semester of engaging choral instruction with professional songleader and singer-songwriter Noe Venable, plus the opportunity to perform in our closing concert for family and friends at the beautiful Noe Valley Ministry.

Access to studio quality practice recordings of the songs for home practice.  

Complete lyrics for reference.

Fun musical games and mindset practices for self-connected, empowered vocal expression.


HOW: We meet in the San Francisco Bay Area, in several smaller, separate cohorts who come together for a single shared performance at the close of our season together, along with members of Mothe
rsong Chorus, my community choir for women and nonbinary folks.  Individual cohorts are kept intentionally small for COVID safety and for reasons of group culture.

This listing is for our cohort that meets on Wednesday afternoons in San Francisco.  (To register for a different Forest Voices cohort, look here.)

WHO: Open to kids ages 7 - 11. (Parents of older kids, take note that most who join us are on the young side of that range.)

COVID safety: We meet indoors in a well ventilated space with air purifiers running.  Masks are optional. 

WHEN:  Wednesdays, February 14th, 2024 - May 29th, 2024, 4 - 5 PM  (We will not meet on 3/27)
WHERE: We meet at the
 Noe Valley Ministry at 1021 Sanchez St in San Francisco.

Closing Concert, including Community Sing and Potluck Reception:
Saturday, June 1st - 2PM - 5:15PM, show at 3PM
at the Unitarian Universalist Church of San Francisco, 1187 Franklin St.


The financial exchange for this group works out to $398 for sixteen events at the early bird rate (to be prorated for families joining us after the start of the season).  Payments may be made either up front or monthly.  To access the option to pay monthly, just click "more payment options" below the "Add to Cart" button.  From there, select "Shop Pay" to set up your plan.

If your child is new to the group, they will also need an official t-shirt, for wearing in our performances.  You may order your t-shirt here.  (This is also the way for returning Forest Voices choristers to order a replacement t-shirt or to get one in a new size.)
