Choir Camp Day 2

Day 2 of choir camp was so much fun. Campers were busy making new friends, learning new vocal technique, and memorizing tons of music and lyrics. Learning TV theme songs seems like an easy task, but when put into a one-week setting with over a dozen songs, it’s quite difficult and these choristers are accepting the challenge like true professionals!

As most of you know by now, YPC Erie is in the middle of an intense Pepsi Refresh Project campaign where we are competing for $25,000 to send us to the World Choir Games. Our choristers know what it would mean for us if we won this grant, so they are actively helping us get votes! We are taking 30 minutes per day and asking our older choristers with cell phones and facebook to vote for us and help bring in the votes from their friends. We are currently in 10th place, and this is much due to the hard work of our choristers.

We ended our evening tonight with a brilliant performance at the Millcreek Mall. Over 100 people watched and listened to the performance by our campers. The campers have had this music for less than 36 hours and received a roaring applause that could be heard all across the mall.

Tomorrow, our campers are giving a cameo performance at the Erie Art Museum’s Mid Day Art Break at 1pm, followed by performances at Sarah Reed Retirement Center and the Erie Zoo. We hope to see you tomorrow, but if not, we hope you are able to come to our family carnival on Saturday from 10:30-noon outside of the Reed Union Building on the Penn State campus and then for our final camp performance (with lots of surprises) at 12 noon!
