Local youth will be part of children’s choir concert at National Music Museum

Local youth will be part of children's choir concert at National Music Museum Two young singers from Vermillion, Lena and Kyle Jensen, will be singing with 29 of their friends on Saturday, March 27 as the Yankton Children's Choir Concert Choir presents a mini-concert at the National Music Museum. This concert will begin at 12:05 p.m. and the public is invited to attend.

Now in its 11th year, the auditioned choir, made up of singers with unchanged voices in grades 3 to 8, blends children's voices from many area communities, including three Nebraska towns.

Some of the highlights celebrated by this choir have been the chance to sing at the lighting ceremony at Mount Rushmore, a Minnesota Twins game, several Skyforce basketball games, and last year it participated in the Music Festival of the Rockies.

The young musicians came home with a trophy and a gold medal � one of only 20 given in this 14-city international festival.

During the upcoming Vermillion concert the audience will enjoy a variety of choral music, including Cherubini's Like As a Father, Saint-Saens' Praise Ye The Lord, an exciting contemporary Jubilate Deo, a tranquil setting of This Little Light of Mine, and the popular Accentuate The Positive.

The Yankton Children's Choir believes that children are capable of learning and performing quality, challenging music and especially encourages all children who love to sing to come hear the choir. Auditions will be held in early May for next year's choir.

Choral director is Lea Ann Schramm, associate director is Margaret Lyons, both of Yankton, and assistant director is Jo Anne Hamilton of Hartington, NE.
