What is Juneberry at UVMC?
Classes to help you find & explore your voice, or improve your skills as a choral singer plus an unauditioned chorus to make music with other singers.
Singing is a skill that can be acquired by just about everyone, and Juneberry director Patricia Norton believes there's a choir for everyone who wants to sing. A very small percentage of people can’t detect a change in pitch. The other 98+% can. If you can hear a siren going up and down, you can learn to sing.
You get more than just pleasure from
singing. (Although wouldn't it be enough?) Recent studies have shown
that choral singing increases neural connections, fortifies the immune
system, and reduces stress and depression. Choral singing builds health
and resilience for individuals, families and communities. Check out
the benefits page for articles.

"The easiest way to avoid wrong notes is to never open your mouth and sing. What a mistake that would be." Pete Seeger
"There's nothing wrong with concert-going
or CD-buying, but it’s through actively making music that the most
profound joys and fulfillment can be found." Community
