Children’s choirs from throughout the diocese will gather at Rochester’s Sacred Heart Cathedral Oct. 21-23 for One Spirit, One Song: Diocesan Children’s Choir Festival.
Nearly 200 children from 12 choirs will take part in the festival, gathering Oct 21-22 for rehearsals with nationally known children’s choir director Lee Gwozdz before putting on a concert at 2 p.m. Oct. 23. The concert is free and open to the public, although a free-will offering will be accepted.
Classroom music teachers and children’s choir directors are invited to attend a workshop with Gwozdz Oct. 21 from 1 to 3 p.m. During the workshop, Gwozdz will demonstrate practical ways to use certain tools and toys to achieve correct vocal technique and good choral sound, diction and dynamics.
The cost of the workshop is $15. To register, contact Yvonne Moss at 585/328-3228, ext. 1328, or firstname.lastname@example.org.
