Macomb Community College’s Children’s Chorus hosts spring concert April 30

– Wednesday, April 11, 2018 12:00AM

Registration open for all children’s summer workshop, including Children’s Chorus

Last September, a group of students ranging from grades two through 12 began gathering every week to rehearse as the Macomb’s Children’s Chorus. Their hard work and dedication will culminate in a concert April 30 at 7:30 p.m. at the Macomb Center for the Performing Arts.

“Our goal is for the students to learn as well as have fun. We emphasize musicianship and vocal technique,” said James Pecar, director of the choirs that make up the Children’s Chorus. “We teach them that it takes hard work to be good. The students have made a commitment of a weekly rehearsal for an extra-curricular activity, and their hard work has resulted in them growing and becoming more mature in sound and rehearsal etiquette.  They’ve developed a passion for something that is greater than themselves.”

The concert will features madrigals, spirituals and some choral classics. Tickets are $7, $5 for children age 12 and younger.  

The Children’s Chorus is among the educational and outreach programs offered through the Macomb Center for the Performing Arts. Registration is open now for the Macomb Center’s summer workshops.
