Dear Fellow Music Directors,
In two weeks, there is a wonderful opportunity coming to Indianapolis for any music student across the state. On Saturday, February 27th, the Ontario Youth A Cappella Chorus will be traveling to Indianapolis to facilitate an all-day workshop and performance at Christ Lutheran Church in Indianapolis.
This event focuses on four-part a cappella harmony. Students who attend will be provided sheet music at the venue. Students will learn new singing skills and reinforce proper singing habits through working with several clinicians and professional musicians throughout the day. Any student who loves to sing and wants to improve their musical skills can attend!
The workshop begins at 10:00 AM and goes for several hours. A light lunch and dinner are provided, and then the students stay for the performance that night, which begins at 7:00 PM. Students attending the workshop should bring a black shirt/blouse, black pants, and black shoes (concert blacks) for the performance that evening.
The event is being sponsored by the O YA Chorus and hosted by the Indianapolis Barbershop Harmony Society (BHS) Chapter and Chorus, Circle City Sound. Therefore, there is NO COST to students who wish to participate! They just need to find their own way to the event!
The performance will feature the O YA Chorus with the Workshop Students, Yonge Guns Quartet (2015 BHS International Collegiate Quartet Bronze Medalist), Circle City Sound Chorus (Several-time BHS International Chorus Finalist), and Instant Classic (2015 BHS International Quartet Champions). There is a $5 Suggested Donation at the door, but people are invited to simply show up and enjoy the music!
More information on the performing groups can be found at their respective websites:
