Eight Fort Wayne Children’s Choir ensembles will perform in the HARVEST CONCERT on Sunday, November 6, 4:00 pm in the Auer Performance Hall, IPFW Rhinehart Music Center. This is the first formal concert of the 2016-17 choir season. Tickets are available through the IPFW Ticket Office (ipfw.edu/tickets), or 260.481.6555.
The theme of the program is “Finding Meaning in Text,” referencing the musical selections with words from William Shakespeare, St. Francis of Assisi, William Thackeray, A. A. Milne, e. e. cummings, Robert Louis Stevenson, Emily Dickinson, and more. What comes first? Emotional, moving music, or thought-provoking, passionate words? The exquisite combination of lyrics and music is, oftentimes, what imprints a song in our heart and brain.
The mission of the Fort Wayne Children’s Choir is to provide a choral program exemplifying artistic and educational excellence for children from diverse backgrounds. The Fort Wayne Children’s Choir contributes to the community’s cultural environment by providing opportunities to experience the unique beauty of nearly 300 professionally trained young voices.
