This preview has been provided by the Cary-Apex Youth Choir.
The Cary-Apex Youth Choir will present its spring concert, "America the Beautiful," on Saturday, May 14th, at 4:00pm at Green Level Baptist Church. The program includes a collection of songs representing the many genres of music that have emerged through the American experience. From folk to gospel, country to musical theater, there’s sure to be something for everyone!
Founding Director, Laura Delauney, is a resident of west Cary and thrilled to be bringing this choir to the Cary-Apex community. A lifelong musician, Mrs. Delauney has played piano since and sung in choirs since childhood. Her most influential choral experience was singing in the Charlotte Children's Choir in the early 1990s, under the direction of Sandy Holland, to whom she credits the inspiration to begin the Cary-Apex Youth Choir. Mrs. Delauney holds a B.A. in Music from the University of Richmond and a M.A. in Teaching with a Choral Music emphasis from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. Since moving to the Triangle in 2003, Mrs. Delauney has directed multiple school, church, and community choirs. She is also the Director's Assistant and Soprano 1 section leader for Women's Voices Chorus in Chapel Hill.
The Cary-Apex Youth Choir provides choral music education and performance opportunities for youth ages 8-15 in the fast-growing western Cary/Apex area. CAYC is a treble choir program for girls and boys (with unchanged voices). Choristers sings a wide variety of choral music, learn music-reading skills in a fun environment, and perform locally throughout the year, in two ensembles, the Prelude and Lyric Choirs.
Only in its fourth season, the choir is thrilled to be able to be able to return to in-person performances for the community this year. In addition to two concerts this season, the choir has also enjoyed performing at town festivals, neighborhood caroling, singing the national anthem at a Durham Bulls game, and volunteering with the Miracle League of the Triangle. "America the Beautiful" will represent the culmination of much hard work during a challenging time, and the joyful celebration of our collective musical history.
Tickets are $5, and are available at the door. For more information, visit caryapexyouthchoir.org.
