On November 14 at 4:00pm the “Three Rivers Young Singer Choral Festival” culminates in a festive “en masse” choral extravaganza under the direction of internationally recognized guest conductor, Henry Leck, Founder and Artistic Director of the Indianapolis Children’s Choir. Each choir will perform separately then, the combined choir of over 300 voices will all take to the stage to sing works by Eric Whitacre and Franz Josef Haydn.
