Warde Chamber Singers Perform at WCSU'S Chamber Choir Festival

On Fri. Oct. 13, 2017, the Chamber Singers participated in the WCSU Cantate Chamber Choir Festival at their Visual & Performing Arts Center.  They performed 2 pieces (with violin accompaniment from sophomore orchestra student, Harry Graney Green) and received a clinic from professors Dr. Cory Ganschow and Dr. Christopher Thomas.  Additionally, they heard performances from 8 other Connecticut high school choirs and 2 of the WCSU choirs.  It was a wonderful learning experience for the students, and we look forward to applying the lessons learned to our future music making.
