||North Country Chorus is pleased to announce that the Youth Chorus we have sponsored for the last two years will resume regular rehearsals at 3:30PM on Friday, October 25th. There are a number of changes this year. Thanks to our partnership with Catamount Arts, the rehearsals will be held there, on Friday afternoons, from 3:30-5 PM. A snack will be provided. Chelsea Chen will return as the accompanist. There will be a new director, Lewis Botelho-Gomes, who is also part of the EPIC program. He has an impressive background including extensive experience conducting a variety of children’s choruses. He brings movement, dance, and fosters curiosity to create a vibrant learning environment. Children from grade 3-8 are welcomed, there is no audition and no fee. Contact Lewis at firstname.lastname@example.org for more info and to sign up. Families within a 30 minute drive of St J can probably get their kids there in time for rehearsal! This is a rare opportunity for kids in the north country of Vermont and New Hampshire.
