Terre Haute Children’s Choir end-of-semester performance set for Dec. 10

December 4, 2014

The Terre Haute Children's Choir end-of-semester performance will be held 6 p.m. Dec. 10 on the Indiana State campus in University Hall.

Admission is free and refreshments will be served after the performance. University Hall is located at 401 N. 7th St. Parking is free after 5 p.m. in any student or faculty lot.

Under new direction by Anita Gambill and Janni Richards, the choir offers three different groups to accommodate the singing experiences of all children, ages 7 and up. Children may progress to the more advanced choirs through bi-annual auditions.

The choir meets 4:30-6 p.m. every Wednesday of the school year in the Landini Center for Performing and Fine Arts, located on the Indiana State campus on the corner of 7th and Chestnut streets. Spring classes begin Jan. 21 and run through Apr. 29. Auditions will be held 4:30-6 p.m. Jan. 14- 16. The auditions are the directors' placement tools used to determine the best fit for each child.

"All children are placed in the choir after auditioning. It is an informal setting, and there is no need to worry," said Crystal Myers, the choir's coordinator.

The choir performs throughout the semester at different community locations in addition to the final concert. Fees are $120 for the fall semester or $220 for both fall and spring semesters. Sibling discounts and scholarships available.

The Terre Haute Children's Choir is a program offered by the The Community School of the Arts, an Indiana State University Unbounded Possibilities initiative, providing the communities of the Wabash Valley and surrounding areas the opportunity to participate in non-credit classes in music, theater and visual art.
CSA welcomes students of all ages, backgrounds and ability levels to experience professional and affordable instruction in the performing and fine arts.
