Elgin Children’s Chorus and Elgin Master Chorale:
Combining Our Future
We're so excited to announce that the beloved and renowned Elgin Children's Chorus is going to become the Elgin Master Chorale Children's Chorus! The Elgin Children’s Chorus, founded in 1982, has long been a staple of the arts in Elgin, and a mainstay of musical opportunity for youth in the Fox Valley area. With the retirement of Music Director and Founder Jay Kellner this spring, the Children’s Chorus was set to cease operations in summer 2016. On Saturday, June 25, a final concert and alumni reunion was held at Elgin’s First United Methodist Church. Along with farewells and performances of beloved Children’s Chorus pieces, Board and staff members of the Elgin Master Chorale made a special announcement. The Elgin Master Chorale is planning to fold the Elgin Children’s Chorus into its own operations starting in fall 2016, providing funds and staff needed for the organization to continue. Jay Kellner announced, though he is retiring from the post, he whole heartedly supports this new beginning. Registration forms were given out at the event, and well as donations accepted to supplement the effort.
We are eager for this new chapter to begin! Of course, efforts like this take funds and support from the community. We are counting on our patrons and supporters joining with us in this project. Let's keep our kids singing! Registration inquiries and all questions can be directed to Elizabeth Niemeier at firstname.lastname@example.org. More info to come soon!
