The children’s choir rehearses from 6:30 to7:30 p.m. and the young men’s ensemble from 7:45- 8:45 p.m. Each year the young men’s ensemble participates in the barbershop “Festival of Harmony” and has been chosen to perform in their evening concert.

Tom Pedas, a former music teacher with the Linden and Cranford Public Schools, who now teaches at Saint John the Apostle School in Clark, founded the children's choir 15 years ago. The current members come from three different counties. Many of them have been chosen for All State, All Eastern and Nationals Honor Choirs.
The Celebration Singers Children’s Choir and Young Men’s Ensemble are tuition-free that are sponsored by the Celebration Singers Adult Choir, a non-profit cultural arts organization. Funding for the Celebration Singers is made possible in part by the New Jersey State Council for the Arts, Department of State, through a grant administered by the Union County Office of Cultural and Heritage Affairs.
