The Louisville Youth Choir will start 2012 off right by offering mid-season auditions [Family & Parenting]

The popularity in recent years of shows like American IdolX Factor​, and Glee proves that now, more than ever, a beautiful singing voice is a valued gift, both personally and professionally. While arts programs in our public schools are decreasing rapidly, young people seem to be taking more of an interest in singing and vocal performance in their spare time. For young Louisvillians, a wonderful opportunity to foster this particular talent has just been made available by the Louisville Youth Choir.

Mid-season auditions for the rest of the LYC's forty-fifth season will take place on Thursday, January 5, from 5 to 8 p.m. at the Sacred Heart School for the Arts. All young persons in grades four through twelve are encouraged to come out and demonstrate their musical prowess! Those who attend should be prepared to sing scales, "My Country 'Tis of Thee," and to clap rhythms.

The Louisville Youth Choir is a true Louisville original that has been fostering the artistic inclinations of local youth for forty-five years. It boasts 100 singers from more than 60 schools in Kentuckiana, and its repertoire includes a variety of styles from different cultures across the globe, ranging from the classics to modern works. For the remainder of the 2011-2012 season, current students and those selected in January will perform on stage twice: once in March and again in April for the Arts-in-Action Pops concert. Auditions will be held at the Ursuline campus of the Sacred Heart School for the Arts, in Angela Hall, and are completely free. Forms and additional information are available on the LYC's homepage or by calling (502)-896-5859.

About Karen Ellestad
When I was seven and my brother was eight, we both wrote to 'Where in the World is Carmen Sandiego?' for a free t-shirt. Two weeks later his arrived in the mail, signed by Carmen Sandiego herself, accompanied by an autographed picture of the cast, an official membership to the 'Gumshoe Club,' and a Rockapella casette tape. I got a postcard.
