SOKY Children’s Chorus, an ensemble music education program for grades 4-8, is gearing up for the fall 2013 season. The mission of the Chorus is to provide age-appropriate music education through rehearsals and performances of quality music literature.
WKU Assistant Professor of Music Dr. Jennifer Adam coordinates the program, which supplements existing school and church programs in the area by expanding students’ knowledge of choral literature and provides them with additional local, regional and national performance opportunities.
“The Chorus also fosters personal, social and musical growth for each student,” Adam said.
Adam directs the program’s rehearsals and performances. She also enlists qualified WKU students to assist with the program. Music majors help with rehearsals, recitals and concerts. Music education students serve as assistant directors and accompanists.
Fall auditions take place from 6 p.m. to 7 p.m. Aug. 20 at the Knicely Conference Center on Nashville Road. The program will run Sept. 3-Dec. 10 with rehearsals Tuesdays from 6 to 7:30 p.m. at First Christian Church in downtown Bowling Green.
Performances take place in October and December at Van Meter Auditorium on the WKU campus.
Program fees are $150 per semester. WKU alumni, faculty and staff receive a $25 discount. There is also a $25 second-child discount. Audition pre-registration is available by calling (270) 745-1912.
Registration continues through Aug. 27. For information, call (270) 745-1912 or visit www.wku.edu/childrensing.
