Join the St. Francis Youth Choir

Starting October 11, 6-6:45pm | St. Francis Music Center 

 

All area youth in grades 3 through 8 are invited to join the Youth Choir at St. Francis Music Center, Little Falls. This short-term choir will meet Thursday evenings from 6-6:45 p.m. in Room 242, beginning October 11.

 

This is a great opportunity for young people who love to sing and want more opportunities singing with a group. Under the direction of Vicki Spofford and Joan Wingert, the group will learn songs for the Christmas concert. There will be no auditions to be a part of the group, just a willingness to sing and learn!

 

The Youth Choir will perform with the St. Francis Community Chorale at a Christmas concert on Friday, December 7, 7 p.m., in Sacred Heart Chapel at St. Francis Convent, singing two songs with the Chorale and two songs on their own. 

 

This is a free opportunity for area youth, thanks to a grant provided by the Five Wings Arts Program with funds provided by the Minnesota State Arts Board through an appropriation by the Minnesota State Legislature.

 

For more information, or to register, contact the Music Center at (320)632-0637 or Vicki Spofford at (320)632-2360. Youth are also welcome to just show up at the first rehearsal.
