Join SPR for this free concert at the Westminster Congregational United Church of Christ. The concert will feature the Spokane Area Youth Choirs and Le Donne Choir, and be hosted by SPR's Verne Windham. Hear these choirs raise their voices during this show called Open Doors. The concert will begin at 1 p.m.
Spokane Area Youth Choirs (SAYChoirs) provides a joyful and challenging musical experience through the study, rehearsal, and performance of choral music. Choristers are introduced to healthy vocal technique, musical theory, music history, and a variety of literature and performance styles. Students ages 7-18 can find their voice in several graduated levels. In addition, SAYC offers the ABC program, a beginning choir for 5 and 6 year-olds, focused on the Kodaly method; and Le Donne, a choir for adult women. SAYChoirs has touched the lives of over a thousand choristers and countless audience members since its founding in 1987.
Le Donne is a non-auditioned choir for adult women, designed as a natural outreach of the Spokane Area Youth Choirs’ mission. It is directed by Barbara Tappa, and accompanied by Susan Windham, who also serves as the vocal coach. Respectful of busy women’s schedules, the choir rehearses one night per week, and presents three concerts annually. Repertoire includes a diverse mix of pieces in up to four parts. Through continued vocal training and the sharing of quality women’s choral literature, they provide a meaningful outlet for singers and an uplifting experience for audiences.
Join us for this special concert on Saturday, November 16th at 1 p.m. in Spokane's oldest church, Westminster Congregational Church, located on 411 S Washington Street in Spokane.
