Children’s Chorus of Carroll County begins another season of music and friendship with our first rehearsal night. Sept. 6th marks the date. Parents, be sure to be there for the required Parents Orientation. Two Orientation sessions have been planned to accommodate your schedule. Parents should attend either the 6:15 or 7:15 Parent Orientation Meeting. We look forward to seeing all of our returning and new singers as well as the Parents. Be sure to be there, we have lots of fun things planned for the year.
The Children’s Chorus of Carroll County will be traveling to NEW ORLEANS in June of 2017 for the Crescent City Choral Festival! Members of Bel Canto 1 and Bel Canto 2 are encouraged to take this amazing opportunity to explore music and history. We will have the honor of performing in the St. Louis Cathedral under the direction of Cheryl Dupont, Executive/Artistic Director of the New Orleans Children’s Chorus, and world-renowned choral composter, Bob Chilcott. We will stay in a beautiful hotel in the French Quarter, and even experience a cruise on the Mississippi River, plus an evening of dinner and dancing.
Mark your calendars and more details to come!
At our recent Gala 30th Anniversary Celebration, Artistic Director, Diane Jones announced that Jenna Lebherz Daly has been selected as the new Artistic Director for Children’s Chorus of Carroll County.
Jenna Daly has served the Chorus as director of musique joyeuse and Les Petites Voix. She sang with the Frederick Children’s Chorus from 5th-12th grade and fell in love with the unique silvery sound of a children’s choir. After high school, she went on to Westminster Choir College in Princeton, NJ to earn Bachelor’s degrees in Music Education and Vocal Performance. She then earned a Master’s in Opera Performance with University of Maryland’s Opera Studio. Mrs. Daly has performed in many states and venues, and she continues to be active in the opera world as a mezzo-soprano, singing for opera companies and orchestras. Currently, she teaches the Lower School Music Program (Pre-K through 5th grade) at Gerstell Academy in Finksburg, MD. She thoroughly loves working with children and keeping music alive through their voices.
Welcome, Jenna, we look forward to seeing where you take us in the future!
