MEET THE DIRECTORS:
Retired music educators Judy Heffron and Darby Hintz are developing and directing the youth choir (Grades 3-5) – ONE VOICE.
Darby and Judy had careers teaching hundreds and hundreds of singers in kindergarten through sixth grade. Between the two licensed school directors there is more than 70 years of combined experience directing children’s choruses. They both have extensive backgrounds in knowing how to teach kids how to read music, to perform better and to sing better.
There will be a difference between a school concert and a ONE VOICE concert. ONE VOICE is definitely a performance group, meant to entertain the audience. In a school chorus setting, classes show off the skills they are working on so the focus is not necessarily to entertaintainment.
“ONE VOICE is for everybody who wants to sing, and yes, it could allow someone with talent to really shine if he or she wants to. There will be a wide variety of music,” Heffron said. “We have some popular music, and some cultural music. There will be something for every taste.”
