Singing Workshop For Area Children

The Sleepy Creek Children's Choir will hold their second annual Summer Workshop on Wednesday, June 17, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the Berkeley Springs Presbyterian Church on Mercer Street.

The 2009 summer workshop will be presented by Sleepy Creek Children's Choir music director Denise Cline and assistant director Margi Griffiths, and is sponsored by The Community Choir, Inc. The workshop is open to all local children between the ages of 5 and 17, and previous choir experience is not required.

"Our annual workshop is wonderful way to introduce children to choral music," says Cline. "While we will focus our energies on learning a specific song, in this case 'Children of Peace,' which is our theme song for our 2010 season, we will also introduce basic elements of music theory and discuss the history of music."

Advance registration is requested, but walk-ins will be welcome. Although light snacks will be served, attendees are asked to bring a bag lunch. To ensure the safety of the workshop's young participants, children under the age of 16 must be signed in and signed out by a parent or another authorized adult.

For more information or to register for the Sleepy Creek Children's Choir 2009 Summer Workshop, please contact Denise Cline at 304-258-7792 or Margi Griffiths at 304-258-9415.
