The Terre Haute Children's Choir's Spring Concert will be held at 6 p.m. Wednesday, May 4 on the Indiana State University campus in University Hall. Admission is free and refreshments will be served after the event. University Hall is located at 401 N. 7th Street. Parking is free after 5 p.m. in any student or faculty lot.

Under 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. Fall auditions will be held 4:30-6 p.m. on Wednesday, Aug. 31, Thursday, Sept. 1 and Friday, Sept. 2, and all children are welcome. The auditions are the directors' placement tools used to determine the best fit for each child.

The choir performs throughout the semester at different community locations in addition to the final concert. Fees are $140 for the fall semester or $240 for both fall and spring semesters. Sibling discounts are available.

Through grants received by the Indiana Arts Commission and the Wabash Valley Community Foundation, the choir is able to offer scholarships to families who qualify.

The school provides 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.
