Teen choristers from the Children’s Chorus of Sussex County Concert Choir placed second in the Kathaumixw International Choral Festival which took place recently in British Columbia.

The festival committee selected a total of 30 choirs, including children, youth and adults, based on an audition process.

The Children’s Chorus of Sussex County was chosen along with only four other choirs from the United States. Throughout the week-long event, choristers and musicians enjoyed a rigorous schedule of competitions and performances, culminating in a concert which included all participants.

Other nations represented at the festival included Russia, China, New Zealand, Czech Republic, Canada, Uganda, Kenya and Slovenia.

Auditions for acceptance into the Children’s Chorus of Sussex County are taking place by appointment throughout the summer.

The Children’s Chorus of Sussex County serves school-age children in and around Sussex County by providing a comprehensive choral music program.

Interested applicants can audition for one of three separate ensembles which perform under the umbrella of the Children’s Chorus of Sussex County - Bel Canto for beginning singers in grades first through fouth, Bella Voce for intermediate singers in grades fifth through eighth, and Concert Choir for advanced singers in grades seventh through twelve.

The Children’s Chorus of Sussex County has several exciting ventures planned for the upcoming season, including the recording of a music track for a video game, as well as a summer 2015 trip to Syros, Greece to perform in the Festival of the Aegean.

The three choirs also participate in concerts during the winter and spring. Rehearsals take place at Christ Episcopal Church, at 62 Main St. in Newton.
