Amazing! Awesome! Beautiful!

The Christmas Concert was a wonderful experience! You each tried so hard to do your best and I could feel it! The compliments to your hard work were many, and very enthusiastic, and we were so pleased!

The Director of the Brandt Center said, "I hope you realize that the work you do is 'World Class!'" Since he watches and listens to so many groups, we felt this was a great compliment to you!

It was rather astonishing to listen to the difference in the maturity of the choirs as you each sang a verse of The First Nowell! Even I was surprised, and I hear you each week! We received such great comments about each group's performance!

I think we have learned a great deal this past semester and I look forward to the Spring Term (which starts in January.) 😊

Auditions will be January 9th for new students, and those wanting to advance, from 5-8 pm in the Nampa Civic Center. Please invite your talented friends to join us! (Current members of Young Artists do not need to re-audition.)

Rehearsals begin January 16th, same rehearsal times and same location!

(Please share any special photos you have from the concert with us so we can post them on the blog!)
