2017 HONORS VOCALISTS

The Kearsarge Chorale was pleased to be joined by two Honor Vocalists at its spring concert, Welcome Summer, on 22 and 23 April.  In its Honor Vocalist program, student singers are welcomed to rehearse and perform with the chorale.  The students gain the experience of singing with an adult group and the chorale has the pleasure of inspiring the students to a lifetime of musical enjoyment through song.

 

This spring, the chorale was joined by Dan Stadden, a senior at Colby Sawyer College, and Malcolm Cleveland, an eighth grader at Kearsarge Middle School.  Both made significant contributions to the bass section and enjoyed singing a collection of light-hearted songs appropriate to the season.
