The young singers of the Campbell River Children’s Choir are busy preparing for their wrap up concert, which will be held at the Campbell River United Church on Saturday May 7 at 7:30 p.m.
The choir has had a number of guests working with them this year and they are eager to share their new skills and songs with the public.
The choir is committed to providing “big city” opportunities to local youth and they have sponsored a number of events this year designed to enhance the skills and expand the musical horizons of the singers.
Su Hart from the United Kingdom, Moira Smiley and VOCO from Los Angeles, Les Voix Boreales from Quebec, and Campbell River’s own Marcello Sequeira have all shared their skills, songs, and talent with the group.
“Musical culture is incredibly vibrant and varied, it draws together people from around the globe and inspires youth to set their goals high and to look beyond their community to the greater world,” says music director Barbara Prowse.
The choir would like to encourage young people aged 7 and up who enjoy music and singing to audition for a place in one of the organization’s four groups. Auditions will be held in May and can be booked online at crchildrenschoir.ca or by phoning Joanna at 250-202-SING (7464)
Tickets for the Saturday, May 7 concert can be purchased at the Music Plant for $15. This concert will be an emotional one as 11 of the senior singers will be graduating and it will be their last performance with the choir.
There will be a shorter, more informal concert on Sunday, May 8 at 3 p.m. which will highlight the youngest choir.
Tickets for this concert are available at the door on Sunday.
Both Concerts will take place at the Campbell River United Church.
