Crystal Children's Choir was founded in the San Francisco Bay Area in 1994. Since then, it has grown into a 1,200 member organization. The choir's mission is to strive for choral music excellence by providing choral music education to children and blending the best of Eastern and Western musical traditions.
Crystal Children's Choir has toured Australia, Asia, Europe, and North America, and has performed at prestigious venues including St. Peter's Basilica in Vatican, Taipei National Concert Hall, Sydney Opera House, Davies Symphony Hall, Carnegie Hall, and Beijing Concert Hall. Crystal Children's Choir also received numerous invitations to perform in the CMEA Convention and the 2004 National Kodaly Educators Conventions. In 2006, the choir was selected to perform at the MENC 60th National Conference held in Salt Lake City, Utah.

Crystal Children's Choir aspires to be a cultural ambassador of children's choral music, especially in the field of Chinese folk songs and newly commissioned works. Through offering the choristers a unique musical and life-enhancing education, Crystal Children's Choir hopes to nurture teamwork, love of music, and excellence in choral singing among the younger generation.
