If Judy Britts gets her way, the region's newest children's chorus - the Northern California Children's Chorus - will have a big musical impact on Placer County .
The new group seeks to provide a choral music program for boys and girls in
Grades 1 through 8. There will be two groups: a training level and an advanced level ensemble, said Britts, who is NCCC's founder and artistic director.
The group will hold an introductory event, "Come, Sing with Us!" at 10 a.m. Saturday, Sept. 6, at Valley Springs Presbyterian Church at 2401 Olympus Dr., Roseville
The festival will give parents and singers an opportunity to meet the conductors, learn more about the NCCC, and a first chance to schedule an informal audition to be a charter member of the NCCC.
"My approach to repertoire is to provide vocal training through the classics, art songs, folk music of different countries, as well as selections suitable for a child's voice," said Britts.
She added that the NCCC's long term goals involve developing a multi-level program that includes weekly rehearsals, summer camps, day camps for the community, and eventually, tours nationally and internatioanlly to festivals.
