Singing (and Drumming) in the Global Community Festival (6/1/2010)
The choir was pleased to host a multicultural festival at Trinity Lutheran Church in Lansdale on April 10, 2010. The workshop hosted two other area children’s choirs, the Princeton Girlchoir under the direction of Lynell Joy Jenkins, and the New Jersey Youth Chorale, under the direction of Trish Joyce. The three choirs rotated through a series of workshops with noted clinicians Rollo Dilworth, who worked with each choir on one of his arrangements and on singing spirituals and gospel music, Jack Kessler, who lead a session on Jewish Music, Joe Tayoun, who taught Middle Eastern Drumming, and several members of Svitanya, who taught singing in the Eastern European style. In the afternoon, all the choirs combined to rehearse some common music from the morning sessions, and at the end of the day, presented an informal concert that was open to the public.
