Our 20th Season!  Yes, we will be celebrating 20 years of bringing music and education to many singers in the area.  Wescustago Youth Chorale will be joined by Alumni from the past 19 years and they will be performing a number of favorites from the past twenty years.  Our five conductors (Ann Healy Dillon, Lise Dunn, Renovia Day, Amanda Mahaffey and Jen Runge) will be working with the singers and conducting several songs each.  The concert will be at Freeport Performing Arts Center at 7 PM, free admission although a donation is requested.  $10 suggested amount.

Alumni, we want you to come join us!  Whether you sang for the full 9 years with WYC or just one year, please come join us.  We would like you to register with us so that we are sure to have enough music and folders for everyone.  Rehearsal will start at 1 PM and last until 5:30; we will have a pizza supper along with some other items, and start the concert at 7 PM.  Come early on Saturday (details TBD) and browse the early year scrapbooks and view the photoboards from over the years.  Visit with your fellow singers and enjoy meeting other alumni.

Rehearsal and Clinic with Dr. Robert Russell

We had a very productive and fun morning on Saturday with Dr. Robert Russell who worked with our Kennebec and Wescustago Singers.  Dr. Russell gave advice on warmups as well as comments on several pieces that each group was learning.  It’s always a treat to tap into his many years of experience and passion, and he noted that our singers were very eager to try his suggestions and tried new ways of looking at their music.  Thank you for sharing your Saturday morning with us, Dr. Bob!
