Annapolis Children’s Chorus To Sing at St. Mark’s Feb. 26

Share

The All Children’s Chorus of Annapolis will perform at St. Mark’s United Methodist Church on Sunday, Feb. 26. The 3 p.m. performance, part of the church’s Sunday afternoon concert series, is free and open to the public.

The Annapolis chorus, which has performed widely around the Annapolis/Baltimore area, is a community organization that strives for excellence, diversity in membership and teaching the rewards of hard working teamwork. Founded in 2001, the chorus features three levels for children between ages 7 and 18— the Training Chorus, Treble Chorus and Chamber Singers.

Highlight performances include a recent tour to Paris, Carnegie Hall in New York, Meyerhoff Symphony Hall and the Hippodrome in Baltimore, Annapolis Symphony Orchestra, U.S. Naval Academy Chapel, Disney World and many more. Approximately 12 or more performances during the school year are held in locations around the Annapolis area.

The group’s music transcends cultural and theological boundaries — from old Welsh folk songs to the classics of the old masters to the best of contemporary composers. In its publicity, the chorus said it welcomes and actively seeks children from different racial, ethnic cultural backgrounds and neighborhoods.

The program at St. Mark’s is funded in part by a grant from the Talbot County Arts Council, with revenue provided by the Maryland State Arts Council. To further cover expenses, a love offering will be taken at the concert.
