Our NJ Youth Choir Collaboration at Montclair State University on October 15th was a smashing success. NJYC’s Sola Voce, The Apprentice Chorus of the Newark Boys Chorus, The Children’s Choir of Sussex County’s Bella Voce, and the Quarter Notes from the Princeton Girl Choir, all participated in a day of workshops and rehearsals. We wrapped it up with each of the four choirs performing individually, then coming together to perform a song composed for the festival by our clinician, Tom Shelton, Assistant Professor of Sacred Music at Westminster Choir College of Rider University. It was absolutely beautiful, as you can hear:

The boys of our Coro Vivo ensemble performed with the Canadian Brass this past holiday season. The Canadian Brass, one of the most popular brass ensembles today, performs with the utmost dedication, skill and excellence while offering entertainment, spontaneity and fun into their sound. Our Coro Vivo embraced that performance style and joined the Canadian Brass on stage for an incredible performance experience.
The New Jersey Youth Chorus joined the New Jersey Symphony Orchestra to bring the full score of Home Alone to life. In two different performances, Camerata and Coriste performed celebrated songs like “Somewhere in My Memory”, as the holiday classic screened above the stage. The events marked the 25th anniversary of Home Alone’s release.
