Join us for the 23rd year of the Young Singers Project, the Virginia Chorale’s flagship educational program for high school singers. This year, we are delighted to be able to offer our participants the opportunity to join the Virginia Chorale on their program entitled LIFT EVERY VOICE: MUSIC OF BLACK WOMEN COMPOSERS. The Chorale and the YSP participants will sing the glorious Margaret Bonds setting of W.E.B. Du Bois’ prose, Credo, side by side! The participants will also be featured singing selections for chamber choir. Along with repertoire preparation, rehearsal sessions will focus on healthy vocal technique, musicianship, and choral artistry. Virginia Chorale Artistic Director Charles Woodward will conduct.
