Members of the Ames Children’s Choirs are planning a trip to Norway this summer to take part in a series of special concerts. Conductor Sylvia Munsen founded the choirs in 1995, which are comprised of boys and girls from across central Iowa between the ages of eight and 16.
Munsen says 30 children will go on the Norway trip, which promises to be an amazing international experience. This is the third time the Ames choir has traveled abroad, following appearances in the Czech Republic and Vancouver, Canada.
The program includes three choirs, all focused on the development of self-esteem through artistic experience. It’s used as part of teacher training for choral music education students at Iowa State University. The choirs will perform this Sunday at 3 P.M. at Elim Lutheran Church in Randall.
