On May 6th at the Garfield Center for the Arts, the Chester River Youth Choir will perform their spring concert, “Poets Sing!” The concert begins at 7pm and features musical selections incorporating the poems of William Shakespeare, Lewis Carroll, Christina Rosetti, Robert Lewis Stevenson, Emily Dickinson and Paul Dunbar.
Now in its third year, and under the leadership of director Julie Lawrence, Chester River Youth Choir is being recognized as the premier Children’s Choir in our area! To date, CRYC has sung three Holiday Concerts, this year’s Shakespeare’s Songbook with the Chester River Chorale, and has performed for the National Music Festival opening concerts and the Mahler Symphony #3. The youth choir was also featured in the 2015 production of A Christmas Carol at the GarfieldCenter for the Arts.
New this spring, the program now offers ‘Musical Mapquest 101’ (Music theory classes) to our singers and other interested community members. This is a multi- generational class sponsored by the National Music Festival. The “Poets Sing!” concert is FREE and open to music lovers of all ages.
