The Appalachian Children’s Chorus (ACC) will present a free concert at the Savas-Kostas Theater at Southern West Virginia Community and Technical College (SWVCTC) on Sunday, May 5 at 3 p.m. The event is being sponsored by SWVCTC. The concert features ACC’s Cantare, Concert and Camerata choirs.
ACC is excited to showcase its Cantare choir, now in its fifth season. The Cantare Choir rehearses in Logan County. Jean Ray and the Logan County Charitable and Educational Foundation helped to make this choir possible.
Information about the Cantare Choir will be announced during the concert. Auditions will be held immediately following the concert for children who are interested in joining.
These children performed with Logan County’s own Landau Eugene Murphy Jr.
“These wonderful children of Cantare are the reason we wished to come to Logan. We love to help enrich their lives through music.” said ACC Founding and Artistic Director Selina Midkiff. “This is going to be an amazing show. The children have worked very hard and I am so proud of them,” added Cantare Director, Lisa Anderson.
This free concert by the ACC children only happens once a year. Do not miss the opportunity to hear these beautiful voices on Sunday, May 5 at 3 p.m. at the Southern WV Community and Technical College in the Savas-Kostas Theater.
ACC is the “Official Children’s Chorus” and “Ambassadors of Music” for West Virginia. There are almost 200 children that comprise the seven ACC choirs. The organization is thrilled about its continued growth and presence in Logan County.
The organization’s mission is to develop artistic excellence, a quality music education and extraordinary opportunities for all of West Virginia’s youth. This program is so much more than notes on a page. The music opens the door for a child to have a bright future.
