A couple of years ago a new music teacher at our local Penn State University-Behrend College had the idea of a Young People's Chorus---composed of children from our area with an emphasis on diversity of backgrounds and abilities.
It has flourished in its first two years and this past Friday the chorus came to our chapel and spent the afternoon rehearsing and recording for upcoming events--one of which was the Erie Summer Festival of the Arts this past weekend.
Here's their website and an article from our local paper the Erie Times News. Before they left on Friday they invited all the sisters who were here to come down for a special song as a thank you for the use of the chapel. Maybe some day they'll come back and put on a full concert!
