The Susquehanna Chorale will release a new virtual concert featuring the choral artistry of its educational choirs for children and youth. The concert is free to the public, and will be available via a link to the Chorale’s website beginning Nov. 22.  

 

The virtual concert includes selections from the Chorale’s 2019 Youth Choral Festival, an inspiring intergenerational event with performances by the nearly 200 voices of the Susquehanna Children’s, Youth, and Young Women’s Chorales, and the Susquehanna Chorale. The Youth Choral Festival was performed last November at Messiah University’s High Center for the Performing Arts.

 

“For the safety of the public and our singers, the Susquehanna Chorale made the difficult decision to cancel all live performances in 2020,” said Linda L. Tedford, Artistic Director, Founder and Conductor. “But, our voices will still sing for the community in new ways.”

 

The virtual concert includes special messages from Conductor Tedford and the other youth choir conductors. The concert concludes with Mack Wilberg’s powerful Anthem of Peace, performed by the combined choirs and conducted by Ms. Tedford.

 

The educational choirs are an integral part of the Chorale’s mission. Students are chosen by audition. Participants learn sight-singing, vocal technique, and expressivity through a challenging repertoire representing a variety of musical eras and styles. Students in grades 4 to 12 representing 52 area school districts as well as home-schooled children are involved.

 

The Chorale wishes to thank the following sponsors, foundations, and donors for their support in making the virtual concert possible: Cross Keys Village in New Oxford, Anne M. and Philip H. Glatfelter III Family Foundation, Howard E. Heckler, Josiah W. and Bessie H. Kline Foundation, McCormick Family Foundation, The Presser Foundation, Renew Cumberland County Relief Block Grant Program, United Service Foundation, Inc., and University Music Service.
