CLEVELAND – The Performing Choir from Cleveland School of the Arts, Lower Campus has been invited to perform at National Children’s Choir Festival at Carnegie Hall, one of the premier music festivals in the world.
The Performing Choir, under the direction of Dianna White-Gould, submitted an audition for this special event. The group received a score high enough to qualify for early acceptance, earning them an invitation to perform at Carnegie Hall in February 2011.
Over the past year, thousands of students from hundreds of schools have competed for the opportunity to perform at the Festival at Carnegie Hall. This elite performance opportunity showcases the best children’s choirs from around the country performing under the direction of Henry Leck.
An internationally recognized choral director, Henry Leck is an associate professor and director of Choral Activities at Butler University in Indianapolis, Indiana. In 1986, he became founder and artistic director of the Indianapolis Children’s Choir, one of the largest children’s choir programs in the world.
Festival at Carnegie Hall brings ensembles to one of the most musical cities in the world. With a rich history of producing diverse and acclaimed artists, New York City is the perfect place to take music programs to the next level. Students will not only learn from an unmatched performance opportunity, they’ll have the chance to experience the culture of New York City.
Heritage Festivals congratulates Dianne White-Gould and the Cleveland School of the Arts Performing Choir for this outstanding accomplishment.
