Children's Choir

Previously, we chose a concert each season to feature our RCS Children's Choir, based in Roane County.  In the 2024-2025 season, we have added two new directors and expanded the offering of the Children's Choir to all three of our service areas!  Invitations are extended to local schools and homeschool students each season in the hopes of collaborating with the adult chorus on a concert project.  Due to scheduling, each director has a different approach to working with the children in the community.


Brenda Luggie will attend some regular rehearsals of existing classes/ensembles to prepare them for the performance in our March concert.  This season, Robyn Maker will hold after school rehearsals in Lenoir City for the November concert and Mason VanHorn will meet on Saturday mornings in Oak Ridge for the May concert.


The 2023-2024 season Wind, Water, Earth concert highlighted Ridge View Elementary School second grade students and teacher Elana Douglas.

Youth Opportunities

High school age students are welcome to join the adult chorus with the approval of the director.  A short audition/interview can be scheduled at the beginning of the rehearsal period for any concert of the season.  We endeavor to be a multi-generational ensemble and encourage the participation of young people who will carry on the musical legacy of our community.  


Thanks to our partnership with Roane State Community College, local high school juniors and seniors may also participate for college credit as dual enrollment students or as part of RSCC's Middle College program.  High school students find RCS a challenging and rewarding addition to their high school choral programs or as a welcome opportunity in schools without regular choral programs.  Contact director Brenda Luggie at and appropriate high school guidance counselor for more details.

Music in Education in Schools Grants

Roane Choral Society is committed to keeping quality music education in our public schools and gives at least $1000 annually to deserving programs chosen through an application process.  Winners from each of our three service areas are invited to join Roane Choral Society in a local concert.  


RCS was pleased to provide a total of $1,300 of financial support to Norris Elementary School (Nicole Reeves), Philadelphia Elementary School (John Dutton), Midway Elementary School (Dayna Walker), and Kingston Elementary School (Candace Mull) as winners in the 2023-2024 season.
