LowCountry Children’s Chorus performs annual spring concert

LowCountry Children’s Chorus (LCCC) will be presenting its 10th Anniversary Spring Concert on Saturday, April 28, at 3 p.m. at The Baptist Church of Beaufort, 600 Charles Street. There is no admission, but donations are encouraged.
Savannah Children’s Choir (SCC) will join the singers on the 10th Anniversary Concert. The guest choir from Savannah recently returned from a choral competition in Verona, Italy, and will share some of the choral works from that experience. SCC has performed with the Savannah Sinfonietta, the Savannah Philharmonic Orchestra and Chorus, several artists in residence, and they were a featured presenter at this year’s Georgia Music Educators In-Service Conference in Savannah in February. The chorus was founded in 2006 by Roger Moss, Artistic Director and Cuffy Sullivan, Executive Director.  Their staff includes conductors Timothy Hall and Emmy Williams and Anne Acker, Accompanist.
Both choirs will perform individually for this concert and will also join forces on a few numbers. LCCC will present a choral set with a “water theme” in honor of the Lowcountry setting as well as feature a few of its outstanding young artists as soloists.
LowCountry Children’s Chorus is an auditioned, tuition-based, community chorus for treble voices ages 9 and up.  In residence at The Baptist Church of Beaufort, where most of the rehearsing and performing has transpired over the years, the chorus has also participated in a variety of  community, regional and national choral events.
Some performance sites have included:
• Beaufort and Hilton Head Orchestras
• Hilton Head Choral Society
• Fripp Island Friends of Music
• Heritage Music Festivals in Orlando and Myrtle Beach
• Children in Harmony, Walt Disney World
• Carnegie Hall, New York City
• Piccolo Spoleto, Charleston
• Various community events.
LCCC was founded  by executive director Dr. Melanie Williams and is accompanied by Mrs. Linda Keene.  The choir is a nonprofit community group administered by a volunteer board of directors.
