NJYC's Coriste was invited to join the choirs of Westminster Choir College and the renowned Solid Brass for this spectacular weekend of holiday music for choir, organ and brass, performed in the grandeur of the Princeton University Chapel. It is a beloved annual event, for good reason, and the choir truly did a fantastic job, as you can see from the feedback we received: 

“Thank you again for being part of Readings and Carols.  Your choir sang beautifully, and provided a very special part of our concerts together. It’s always a pleasure to hear them and the incredible work you do!”

“Your choir sounded fantastic.”  

“Your choir sounded so beautiful in that space.  Congratulations on a spectacular performance.”

The Children's Chorus of Sussex County, the Newark Boys Chorus, and the Princeton GirlChoir once again joined NJYC's Sola Voce and Coro Vivo for a day that celebrated intermediate childrens' choirs and developing singers. We welcomed Emily Ellsworth, the nationally recognized former Artistic Director of Anima – Glen Ellyn Children’s Chorus, as the clinician. 

After a workshop from 9:30 to 3, the day culminated in a concert at 3 PM. Each choir performed their own repertoire, then sang together under the direction of Ms. Ellsworth.
