Rave Reviews for Roanoke Valley Children’s Choir

“The experiences that these young people get through singing in the Roanoke Valley Children’s Choir will bring them a life-long love of music and singing.  This is the greatest gift we can give not only to these children but also to our future leaders in our communities.” – Maestro David Stewart Wiley – Roanoke Valley Symphony Orchestra


“The care and consummate integrity with which Ms. Davidson prepares her young people is second to none.  I conduct with orchestras and opera companies all over the country.  I can say without exaggeration that Ms. Davidson’s work with the RVCC represents the highest level of musical and artistic integrity.” – Maestro Steven White – Metropolitan Opera House, New York


“My experiences with the Children’s Choir are ones that I will always hold near and dear to my heart.  I am so grateful to the Children’s Choir and Ms. D for her dedication to our program and her continual encouragement to be the best we could be!” – Dr. Sylvia Hanna – Former RVCC Member


“For 11 years of my life, I had the privilege of being in the Children’s Choir.  I was fortunate to spend my Tuesday nights with a talented group of musicians, who appreciated the dedication and hard work it took to make beautiful music.  Had it not been for the choir, I don’t believe I would have chosen a career in musical theater.  I know that every day I go to work, I will be using the skills and training that I learned from my time in the choir.” – Kenzie  Conner –  Disney Performer


“My ten years in RCCC taught me so much more than music!  Teamwork, perseverance, dedication, and the pursuit of excellence – all of these were developed through my choir experiences.   RVCC is a big commitment that takes hard work, but the rewards are far greater. Mrs. Davidson taught us to ‘reach for the top’, and made sure we had world-class opportunities to shine. Carnegie Hall and Canterbury Cathedral are two that stand out.  They were even topics of college admissions and scholarship essays my senior year – and the feedback was incredibly positive!  I was fortunate to receive a full college scholarship, and I know that my choir experiences helped me ‘stand out in the crowd’ with these applications.  Thank you, Ms. Davidson, and all who continue to help make RVCC available to students in the Roanoke Valley.” – Katherine Quiroz – Christopher Newport University Student
