Joyful Noise Carson Children's Choir became an affiliate of the Carson City
Symphony Association in fall 2017. This choir gives children the opportunity to develop
their voices and learn music concepts of rhythm, pitch, expression, and performance
in a small group. The Joyful Noise choir sings a variety of tunes - hymns, folk songs,
and silly, playful pieces. No musical background is required, and all children are
welcome to participate.
Choir members learn musicality and performance skills through the joy of singing
with a choir. For kids ages 4 through 12 in Carson City, Carson Valley areas.

About the conductor, Nancy Jones:
I asked my parents if I could learn to play the piano when I was four-years-old.
My first piano teacher lived just up the street from our house, so I got to walk to
her home for my lessons. I am grateful to my parents for proviting piano, voice, and
viola lessons over the years and for opportunities to perform at church and community events.
In middle school, I learned to play the viola and continued playing in orchestra at
the Las Vegas Academy of International Studies, Performing and Visual Arts. In my
junior year of high school, I became a vocal performance major and loved participating
in regional and state choirs and orchestras. I attended Brigham Young University, and
though my major was English, I made sure my electives were studded with music courses:
music history, conducting, organ, and my favorite, Women's Chorus, one of only four
auditioned choirs at the university. I performed in Women's Chorus as a second soprano
for three years.
As a mom, I have loved singing with my little daughters and playing at mommy-and-me
music classes. I teach private voice lessons, and perform with the Carson
Chamber Singers. I think making music helps children with their emotional stability
by giving comfort when they are uneasy and letting them express their joy in life and
gratitude to God. On a practical level, singing songs aids our family with transitions
and routines, memorizing facts, and getting our work done - plus, it's fun. I hope you
will join us for this exciting new children's choir.
