We are a new Community Kids’ Choir in beautiful Redlands, California! The Clarion Kids’ Choir is a free opportunity for kids to learn…

We offer excellent training and performance opportunities. No audition is required to join—if you want to sing, we want you!

The choir, fun, education and performances will continue through the spring. Then, a summer music boot-camp will be offered.  All at NO COST!

About the Director

Debbie.jpgThe Clarion Kids’ Choir is directed by Debbie Prutsman, well-known Redlands educator, director, and performer.

Debbie was raised in a home where the arts were cherished. She and her brother and sister were encouraged to pursue anything artistic with a passion! Her brother  became a world renowned pianist, composer, conductor and arranger, and Debbie wound up in Musical Theater, where she built a career that spans Los Angeles to San Diego. She has performed in many different roles at places like Music Theater West, San Diego Musical Theater, Moonlight Amphitheater, Candlelight Pavilion, and Performance Riverside.

Debbie graduated from the University of California, Riverside with a B.S. in Sociology and an emphasis in Biology.  She began teaching in public schools in 1988 and eventually started the largest middle school choral music program in the district at Beattie Middle School. She continued  on to start both the choral and theater programs at Citrus Valley High School. She currently teaches kindergarten at Crafton, and directs the Crafton Crooners, an after-school choir. Debbie LOVES teaching music and voice to kids! You can contact Debbie via email at
