The Kingsley choirs regularly receive first and second division ratings at MSVMA festivals and earn top scores in sight reading.
Several singers have gone on to earn 1st division ratings at MSVMA Solo and Ensemble.
The Kingsley choirs are frequently invited to participate in joint concerts with the Interlochen Arts Academy choirs and NMC choirs. Our choirs serve our community by singing at several nursing homes and our Christmas caroling party.
