Kalamazoo Children's Chorus

A major work by English composer John Rutter, his Mass Of The Children, will unite the Kalamazoo Singers and the Kalamazoo Children's Chorus this Sunday at First United Methodist Church. Conductors Rick Phelps (Kalamazoo Singers) and Fred Sang (Kalamazoo Children's Chorus) will also lead each others' ensembles in various choral works.

Kalamazoo Children's Chorus

The Kalamazoo Children's Chorus returns to Chenery Auditorium this Sunday for a concert called 'A Prelude to Spring.'  

Fred Sang describes the program, and gives us a glimpse into the multi-leveled ensemble, which includes the Treble Choir, Bel Canto, the Preparatory Choir, the Concert Choir and the Touring Choir. He also describes a renaissance in vocal music in the last 20 years, which has provided choirs at all levels the chance to perform excellent, meaningful works. We also hear about the Touring Choir's upcoming trip to Italy in June of 2013.
