SUSQUEHANNA CHILDREN'S CHORALE
Founded in 1992, the 60-voice Susquehanna Children’s Chorale, conducted by Judith A. Shepler, provides a focused rehearsal and performing opportunity for young singers in grades four through eight.
The Children’s Chorale rehearses for ten weeks, two hours each week during the fall. Rehearsals focus on preparation for a Scholarship Benefit Concert, usually held in October, and the annual Youth Choral Festival in November. The program’s repertoire includes pieces from many periods of music history and encompasses a wide range of styles. Emphasis in rehearsals is on exploring fine choral literature for young voices, developing vocal skills through sound pedagogical techniques, and nurturing the love and joy of choral singing.
Singers are required to pay a membership fee. A Scholarship Fund has been established to provide financial assistance for any musician with need who has auditioned successfully.
