Choir auditionsset for Sunday

Organizers of three Community School of the Arts youth choirs will have open auditions for new members entering grades three through 12 Sunday from 2 to 4 p.m. in the Goshen College Music Center.

Auditions will be held for three choirs: Rejoice (those entering grades three through five), directed by Kristin Kauffman; Shout for Joy (grades six through eight), directed by Sandy Hill; and Sommo Voci (grades nine through 12, formerly the High School Honors Choir), directed by Marcia Yost.

Auditions are open by audition to all interested singers, and are “walk-in” with no prior appointment needed. Auditions will be 10 to 15 minutes in length. Students in grades three through five can audition with no advance preparation needed; students auditioning in grades six through eight can opt to bring a song of their choice to sing at their audition. Students auditioning for Sommo Voci are asked to prepare and take a song for their audition, and will be asked to sight-read a piece of music. Students will be notified of results Monday.

Registration through the Community School of the Arts is required for those accepted into the ensembles. Regular tuition is $180, divided into two semester installments of $90 each, plus CSA registration fee. Early registration discounts are available for those who register before July 1. Financial aid is also available to families with need. Registration information for choirs will be available at the auditions.

The CSA youth choirs rehearse weekly on Thursday evenings (Rejoice and Shout for Joy choirs) and Sunday afternoons (Sommo Voci) in the Goshen College Music Center. The choirs perform in Sauder Concert Hall in the fall and spring, and on occasion in other venues at the discretion of the director.

  • GN140726 Queen Kaahumanu GLOBAL FAITHS: Hawaiians' conversion to Christianity helped women A recent trip to Hawaii to visit family drew my attention again to Hawaiian religion. Original Hawaiians are Polynesians who came to Hawaii from Tahiti, Samoa, Easter Island and other Pacific islands between 500 and 1300 A.D. These Hawaiians were polytheists who worshiped and built shrines to various nature deities. But on the big island of Hawaii they came to revere especially Pele, the fierce and violent goddess of volcanoes.

And though his daily regime included loads of therapy and multiple new restrictions, he was able to resume a favorite activity. He could once again coach his granddaughter’s golfing practices and encourage her as well.
