Most all the schools in the valley have children or youth choirs. Many churches in the valley have children or youth choirs. But the one special thing that this valley has is a special children's choir which many folks are not aware of being present. I am speaking of the Smoot Theater Children's Chorus under the direction of Barbara Full, a former music educator of the Wood County Schools system. Recently, I had the privilege to attend their Christmas Concert that was held at Trinity Episcopal Church and was amazed at the choral talent and presentation of 35 talented children of the Wood County and Washington County area.
