Youth chorus seeks new members
The Salem Youth Chorus is seeking new members. For information or to schedule an audition, call 330-607-6320.
The chorus is open to teens (age 14 and up) who want to sing and enjoy challenging repertoire in a demanding but supportive musical and social environment. Students contemplating studying music in college or already doing so will find the SYC an excellent way to reinforce their singing, sight reading, solfege and musicianship. It is also a good way for those who participated in high school music programs to stay involved in singing.
The chorus rehearses once a week throughout the season, alternating at rehearsal sites in Boardman and Salem. The rehearsal schedule intensifies prior to performances.
The Salem Youth Chorus was founded in 2007 in order to provide teens and collegiate aged young adults with the opportunity to sing choral music as crafted by the compositional masters. It has toured the U.S. and England to perform at cathdrals, and has released four CDs.
Fans who couldn’t get into the packed Mumford & Sons concert at the reopening of the Forest Hills Tennis Stadium can request a refund.
The West Side Tennis Club, which owns the venue, said Thursday it will offer refunds “to those of you who didn’t have an optimal experience” at Wednesday’s concert.
The show was the first in more than 20 years at the 90-year-old stadium, where the Beatles, Jimi Hendrix and the Rolling Stones once performed. Some concertgoers had trouble getting into the packed venue, and the statement said the stadium is dealing with “growing pains.”
