Children's Choirs to Sing for Peace
The two ensembles, which employ a constructivist teaching philosophy, are made up, respectively of children ages 7-10 and 10-14 from local area schools. They were co-founded in 2008 by Nicole Becker (Ed.D '11), Artistic Director, and Jeanne Goffi-Fynn (Ed.D '96), Voice Specialist and Lecturer in TC's Program in Music & Music Education.
Titled "Peace Seekers II: For the Children of the World," the concert will feature folk songs from Latin America, Russia, Israel, and Kenya, as well as contemporary American songs for peace. The children will be accompanied by jazz pianist Deanna Witkowski.
The event, which is free and open to the public, will also feature presentation of the Every Voice Choir's Peace Seeker Award to Leila Zerrougui, UN Special Representative of the Secretary-General for Children and Armed Conflict. Ms. Zerrougui will speak about her work advocating for children affected by armed conflict.
