The children and youth involved in Choristers and Cantabile will be participating in the 66th Annual Choristers Guild Festival on Friday, February 23 and Saturday, February 24 . Choristers Guild is a National Christian organization that enables church leaders to nurture the spiritual and musical growth of their children and youth. Augustana has been a member of Choristers Guild for many years, benefiting greatly from workshops, resources, and music publications. The Choristers Guild Festival gives singers the opportunity to sing with children and youth choirs from other churches from across the region. The festival is a wonderful time of fellowship, music, and fun for our kids and we look forward to participating every year. This year, the festival will be held at the historic St Mary’s Cathedral in Cheyenne, WY. All singers in Choristers and Cantabile will be traveling to Cheyenne on Friday evening to enjoy fun and fellowship (pizza and swimming!) with the other choirs. On Saturday, the kids will be in rehearsals to work on vocal and choral techniques, bond with other choir members, and rehearse their songs with our guest conductor. The culmination of the festival is a prayer service that will be presented in the late afternoon. Everyone is invited to attend this beautiful service focusing on Lenten themes. If you have any questions regarding Choristers Guild and/or the Festival, please contact Cindy Lindeen-Martin at 303-388-4678 or by email.
