Honor Chorus Festival 2009

Wow! Talk about an exciting event! This past Saturday's YPC Honor Chorus Festival was a HUGE success. Over 200 choristers from all around the Erie area (even as far away as Wellsboro, PA) joined together on the campus of Penn State Erie, The Behrend College for an exciting day of singing and friendship. Choristers from a wide variety of backgrounds joined together as one voice in celebration of the music. This fun filled day of music culminated in a sold out concert that evening where the participants sang for nearly 500 audience members. All in all the day was a huge success with YPC reaching out to over 800 people including the members, staff, and volunteers present to help make the day happen.

Despite the hectic weekend, YPC is far from slowing down. Rather we are gaining momentum with each and every day. Still to come this month we have a chorister hosted recruitment party on Saturday, November 14th for choristers ages 13-18. The members of the YPC Elementary and Intermediate Choruses are preparing to sing at Springhill Senior Living Center tomorrow, Wednesday, November 11th. Then after a short Thanksgiving break YPC will charge full speed into the busy month of December. In December, the Elementary and Intermediate members of YPC will be performing for the Eriez Magnetics Christmas Party at the Ambassador on December 5th, while their older counterparts, the YPC Chorale, will be performing with the Erie Philharmonic on December 12th. Our December events will culminate in a holiday concert entitled "A Season of Peace" on December 22nd at St. Patrick's Church.

Also remember that YPC will be holding their first round of auditions for the spring term November 30-December 3rd. For more information on our auditions, or any of our other upcoming events, please visit our website http://www.ypcerie.org/, call our office at (814) 898-6789, or email us at info@ypcerie.org.
