Celebrating the Past, Sailing into the Future
On April 17, 2016, Children’s Chorus of Carroll County celebrated our 30th anniversary with a Gala Concert in the sanctuary of St. John Catholic Church in Westminster, MD. The concert featured the world premiere of a new choral work written just for the Children’s Chorus of Carroll County. “Psalm 46” composed by our own alumnus, Dr. DJ Sparr. The concert also featured our 30th Anniversary Alumnae Chorus. It was truly a day to remember.
Immediately following the Gala Concert, attendees joined together in the Portico at St. John for the Gala Reception. The theme for the day was “Celebrating the Past, Sailing into the Future.” Along with celebrating this auspicious occasion, we also said “Bon Voyage” to our retiring Artistic Director, Ms. Diane Jones.
