Last year, Chicago a capella [sic] ensemble brought together young singers throughout the Chicago area for the first ever Youth Choral Festival Concert. On March 9, 2013, a capella is doing it again – and Campanella is one of the choirs invited to participate.
During the festival, Campanella kids will take part in a day worth of workshops, singing and performances. The workshops will be completely free. The festival culminates in a public concert where each of the participating groups will perform, first alone, then together with the a capella singers. There will be no competition, no attempts to one-up each other – just talented kids from all across Chicagoland giving it their best and getting a chance to shine.
Along with Campanella, singers from Hubbard High School, Downers Grove South High School, South Shore High School of Leadership and the Chicago a cappella High School Internship Program will be performing.
The 2013 Youth Choral Festival will take place at Rockefeller Chapel (5850 S. Woodlawn Avenue, Chicago). And while you can’t be there during workshops, we hope to see you all at the public concert, which will begin at 5:30 PM. Tickets cost $10.00 for adults and $5.00 for students.
