Baker to Head Choristers Program

The Mennonite Children’s Choir of Lancaster has named Kit Baker as interim director of the growing Choristers program, one of five programs offered by MCCL. Choristers, a non-auditioned and non-performing group, provides the opportunity to learn vocal and choral skills in a relaxed, fun atmosphere. The Choristers program debuted last year and is expanding into two classes this year under Baker’s leadership: Choristers I (grades 2 - 5) and Choristers II (grades 5 - 8). Participants will learn healthy singing technique, singing in tune, ear-training, and rehearsal skills in an active and engaging environment.

Baker holds a bachelor’s degree in music education from Messiah College and is currently completing a master’s degree in music education at Kent State University. She teaches elementary general music and chorus in the Central Dauphin School District and has experience working with the Susquehanna Children's Chorale. Baker has performed with the Susquehanna Chorale, an award-winning chamber choir in residence at Messiah College. She and her husband, Dan, an MCCL alumnus, attend Mount Joy Mennonite Church where they are active in music leadership.

“I am very excited not only to work with students in developing their singing voices, but also to learn together how to worship God through music and song,” Baker said.
