Third Annual Southlake Children’s Choir Festival
Hundreds of singers from Northwest Indiana to spend the day singing together at Portage High School and conclude the day with a concert that is open to the public.
The Southlake Children’s Choir will present it’s second NWI Choral Festival which brings together singers in grades to 2-12 for a day of singing, making friends, eating sub sandwiches, learning more about music and having fun!
The children come from a variety of locations:
- Current members of the Southlake Children’s Choir
- Children from a variety of schools and music programs from throughout Northwest Indiana representing over 38 school districts.
After a day of rehearsals and games, the Festival Choir will present a short concert at 3:00 pm in Portage High School’s Auditorium. This concert is open to the public: $15 in advance and $20 at the door, with children 12 and under free.
Additionally, a concurrent workshop entitled “Singing Adventures” for local music teachers will be presented – free of charge – by Dr. Albert Jackson, Governors State University Master Chorale; teachers will receive professional growth points for attending (6 hours).
Southlake Children’s Choir, now in its 30th year, enrolls over 50 singers from throughout NWI. Originally founded by Cynthia Bradford and Crown Point Public Schools, SCC is now its own independent non-profit organization based in Crown Point. Southlake Children’s Choir continues to instill a love of music in motivated singers and to create opportunities for sharing that music with their communities, their city (through collaborations with stellar arts organizations like the Northwest Indiana Symphony) and their world (through annual tours to places like NYC, Nashville and collaborations with the Beijing Children’s Choir).
