Under the artistic direction of Missouri Smyth, the Alaska Youth Choir (AYC) participated in the New Orleans, Crescent City Children’s Choir Festival in June of this year.
The AYC was accompanied by Annette Cordle, Tour Director/Accompanist and chaperones Bridget Lujan and Tony Newman.
The festival was attended by both Treble and SATB choirs from all over the U.S. with directors/composers Paul Caldwell & Sean Ivory as the guest clinicians.
While on tour, the choir had several performances that included a Sunday service at Christ Church Cathedral, Preservation Hall, and the finale concert in Saint Louis Cathedral. It was a wonderful musical and educational experience for the Touring Choir; especially the opportunity to sing pieces of music composed by the guest clinicians which included a piece written specifically for the festival.
The Alaska Youth Choir organization would like to sincerely thank the community of Juneau for its continual support of Alaska Youth Choir and our commitment to providing members with experiences that will cultivate a lifelong love of choral music.
