Children's choir to perform spring concert
The Price Children's Choir will present its Spring Concert on the College of Eastern Utah campus Friday, April 24 at 6:00 p.m.
Under the direction of Russell Wilson, the group of 28 singers will perform several pieces, including "Amazing Grace," "Walking In the Air" and "I Sing, Therefore I Am," written for the group by the director.
The ensemble includes children from Carbon and Emery counties, ages seven to 12 years old, and will feature recorders, body percussion, chimes and boomwhackers (tuned plastic tubes that are struck on the floor.)
The choir started rehearsing for this concert in January, and includes lyrics in French and in Latin.
Accompanist for the choir is Amy Nelson, and the assistant director is Jenna Rae Jepson, who will soon graduate from CEU and has been named the outstanding music student this year.
Soloists will be chosen from the group and featured during the concert.
It will be held in the old SAC building ballroom, and is open to the public. The concert will last no more than 40 minutes.
The choir will continue through the summer, and new members may join during the month of May by calling the director, Russell Wilson at 637-5122.
