This new choir will be open to all singers grades 4th through 7th from the St. Croix River Valley are and beyond. The children’s choir will be under the direction of TRCC artistic staff of Andrew Haase and Jodell Krause.
Haase, who is also the Director of Chorale Activities at Hudson High School, is thrilled to provide this singing opportunity to youth singers in the St. Croix River Valley. “In the past few years many individuals have approached me to start a youth choir program in Hudson. There is a strong desire and need within our local communities to provide our youth with more singing opportunities.”
Rehearsals will be held weekly on Thursdays from 4:30pm-5:30pm at the First Presbyterian Church, 1901 Vine Street in Hudson. The first rehearsal will begin on Thursday, February 21st. There will be no rehearsal on Thursday, March 7th due to the Hudson School District’s spring break.
