Casper's Ambassadors of Song
Congratulations on your selection to the upcoming National ACDA Conference in Dallas, TX on March 17-20, 2021. Your work is truly outstanding and representative of the high standards of performance required of all groups invited to perform at an ACDA convention. The conference committee has selected Casper Children's Chorale to perform as one of twenty-four choirs selected by audition for the ACDA 2021 National Conference
We sang, we shared, we grew, we loved…
After an amazing tour through Wyoming, Montana, and Idaho to perform at the Regional ACDA Conference in Spokane, (check our Facebook page!) we returned home to hiatus from rehearsals due to COVID-19. Sadly, we had to cancel our “Friends of Chorale Evening” at the Lyric. This is one of our favorite concerts–an intimate evening of food, festivity, and song honoring our Chorale supporters. (Look for it next year on Tuesday, April 13th!) Please know that we appreciate you all and will let you know when we perform our “Mother’s Day Concert” so that you receive complimentary tickets. Meanwhile, THANK YOU to Chad Lore and Sons for their 24 hour Music Marathon & Fundraiser for Children’s Chorale!
In line with school closures, we also cancelled our exchange with the Colorado Children’s Chorus, Casper School Tour, our Bring a Friend to Chorale Rehearsal, and the 25th Annual Wyoming All State Honor Choir. At this time we hope we can reschedule the 41st Annual Mother’s Day Concert to August 23rd. Children’s Chorale singers are staying connected to their leaders and each other through ZOOM!
Since 1979, the Casper Children’s Chorale has provided a positive and challenging choral experience for young singers in fourth through eighth grades. It was founded by Marcia Patton (pictured left), a music educator and choral conductor with many awards and accomplishments, who believed that children would thrive in an inclusive musical community immersed in culture and the arts, in a program encouraging performance skills through diverse languages, musical styles, movement, and world rhythms. Children from every background are given a foundation in music as a discipline that develops the mind, builds character, opens the world around them, and sustains the spirit. And, it is FUN!
Over the past 41 years, the Casper Children’s Chorale has toured across Wyoming as well as Billings, Boise, Bozeman, Chicago, Colorado Springs, Denver, Los Angeles, Orlando, Portland, Rapid City, Salt Lake City, Seattle, San Antonio, Spokane, Philadelphia, New York City, Washington, DC, and Vancouver, BC, sharing their love of music and their pride in Wyoming. In spring of 2019, celebrating their 40th year, they performed for the opening of the Wyoming Music Educators Convention then traveled to Texas for a Heritage Music Festival where they won a Gold Award, the Adjudicator’s Award, AND all three judges awarded them the singular Outstanding Choir Award! In March of 2020 they were selected to perform for the Northwest American Choral Directors Conference in Spokane, WA.
