Participants in Wichita State's Kodaly Children's Choir Camp and instructors in the WSU Kodaly Certification Program will perform a concert, "Voices in Accord," at 5:30 p.m. Friday, June 14, in Wiedemann Hall. Admission is free and open to the public.
Elaine Quilichini, artistic director of the Calgary Girls Choir (Canada), and Shawn Chastain, executive director of fine arts for Wichita Public Schools, will conduct the choral event.
The concert will conclude with "America the Beautiful: We are a People," a composition arranged by Ruth Dwyer and Martin Ellis. It will feature both the children's and adult's choirs, Mike Wood on piano, and associate professor Lynne Davis on the Marcussen Organ.
WSU's College of Fine Arts offers the Kodaly Children's Choir Camp each summer, in partnership with Kodaly Music Educators of Kansas (KMEK). Young singers, ages 11-16, have the opportunity to improve vocal skills, meet other student musicians and learn Kodaly choral techniques during the weeklong camp.
