Image for Concord Purple Finches to Sing in National Choirs

Jan 20, 2017

This March, eleven members of the Concord Community Music School's Purple Finches Youth Chorus will take flight to Philadelphia, PA to sing on the national stage. Following a competitive audition process, the students have earned places in the Organization of American Kodaly Educators (OAKE) National Conference Choirs.

“The National Choir experience helps the Purple Finches as a whole,” says Purple Finches director Maria Isaak. “Kids come back with all kinds of confidence and leadership abilities, and they pay it forward to the whole group.”

Students will have the opportunity to connect with fellow highly-motivated youth vocalists and will be directed by internationally renowned conductors. After several days of intensive rehearsals, the students will perform an evening concert for conference attendees.
