Council Choraleers offer community performance May 7 at Court Street UMC
Online Staff Report
Local music educator and performing artist Dorothy Paige-Turner invited fifth- and sixth-grade students from public schools, private schools and the home-schooled in the greater Rockford area to participate in Council Choraleers. Council Choraleers is a community chorus coordinated in collaboration with the Rockford Area Arts Council.
This exciting and unique performing experience is an opportunity to heighten community awareness of the enormous artistic talent of area youth. All are welcome to celebrate differences and discover similarities through lifting their collective voice in song.
Rehearsals began Jan. 15, and the “Choraleers” met weekly at Court Street United Methodist Church in Rockford. A community performance, “We are One,” will be held at 6 p.m., Tuesday, May 7, at Court Street United Methodist Church. The performance includes songs of peace and celebration of all, and is part of the month-long activities for “Wright Out of the Box.”
