The Carnegie Children’s Choir will perform their Spring Concert on Tuesday, May 13 at 7 p.m. in the Hamilton Auditorium. The performance is free and open to the general public.
The Children’s Choir is flourishing this year. Twenty-four singers, age 9-14, rehearse every Tuesday from 4-5:30 p.m. in the Carnegie Hall Auditorium. Children from elementary and middle schools in both Greenbrier and Monroe counties work together under the guidance of Susan Adkins with assistance from Heather Falls. Leah Trent accompanies the choir and serves as the program administrator.
In the fall of 2008, the Carnegie Children’s Choir was started to give children in public, private and home school settings an opportunity to sing in a community choir, to learn quality choral literature, to further develop their musical skills, and to learn proper performance and rehearsal etiquette. Membership in the choir also gives these children an opportunity to sing on the stage of Carnegie Hall, accompanied by the glorious sound of our nine-foot Steinway grand piano.
The following students are singing in the Carnegie Children’s Choir this spring: Bridgette Altizer, Kamon Anderson, Alexa Angel, Ariana Angel, Stella Baldwin, Joyce Bernardino, Suzanne Bicksler, Kayla Buckmaster, Gabby Gessie, Ian Hamilton, Alysha Hanna, Kiah Hill, Abbi Judy, Rosie Ketchum, Jarett McHale, Maddie Mohler, Lauren Quick, Madison Rooker, Chris Scronce, Brianna Tuckwiller, Ryan Vaughan, Desi Wise and Blaine Yates.
Carnegie Hall’s 2013-2014 programming is presented with financial assistance from the WV Division of Culture and Arts and the National Endowment for the Arts, with approval from the WV Commission on the Arts.
