Look to this Mother’s Day

Sunday is Mother’s Day, and I’ll be celebrating it in a most delightful way – hearing two of my three kids (Louisa and Sebastian) perform in the Northfield Youth Choirs spring concert.

The concert features special guests – the St. Olaf Choir, directed by Dr. Anton Armstrong – and a commissioned piece by Carolyn Jennings.  It begins at 7:30 p.m. and is in St. Olaf’s Boe Chapel.  Bring your mom, your kids, your friends – anyone who would appreciate an evening of beautiful music!

The concert is the concluding event of NYC’s 25th anniversary season.  As a parent of two singers and as secretary of the NYC board, I have enjoyed participating in events over the past 12 months that have celebrated the organization’s growth and success.  The milestone season kicked off last summer with the exciting trip to the Pacific International Children’s Choir Festival in Eugene, Oregon (Louisa participated and had a fabulous time).  It also included memorable events like Sebastian’s choir singing at the Twins game on Star Wars night in September; and the alumni singalong in December honoring NYC co-founder Cora Scholz, who was named Northfield's Living Treasure for 2012.

I know NYC Artistic Director Liz Shepley has exciting plans for the 26th season and beyond – stay tuned!
