NEWS AND ANNOUNCEMENTS

 

Area youth invited to participate in HCC Children's Choir
9/6/2012

FREEPORT- The Highland Community College Childrens Choir rehearsals will begin on Monday, September 10. The non-audition choir rehearsals will be held on Mondays from 4:15 to 5:30 p.m. in the Ferguson Fine Arts Center, room 10.

All students 8 to 13 years of age who enjoy singing are invited and encouraged to join the choir. The Childrens Choir provides an opportunity to practice vocal music talents as well as promote personal and social growth. There is no registration fee.

The Highland Community College Childrens Choir began in the early 1980s. Over the past 25 years, the Childrens Choir is credited for encouraging the musical talents of hundreds of adolescents and teenagers. This year, Dagny Brandt was named as the new director of the Children's Choir, succeeding Diane Dietmeier who retired last summer after more than 20 years of service.

Brandt has earned degrees from Luther College and the University of Iowa. Before moving to Freeport in 2000, she served as an assistant professor of music at Jamestown College in North Dakota. Currently, she directs a church choir, teaches in local public schools, and gives studio-applied lessons in voice to high school and college students. Brandt lives in Freeport with her husband, Thompson, and their children, Kristin and Carsten.

For more information, please contact the Fine Arts Department at 815.599.3490.
