|Iowa Youth Chorus Spring Sing!
Over 200 young Iowa Youth Chorus (IYC) singers will perform their final concert of the season on Saturday, April 20, 2013, at the Valley Church, 4343 Fuller Road, West Des Moines. The 3:00 pm Spring Sing! Concert includes all choirs – Primary Choir, Children’s Chorus, Concert Choir, Chorale, Chamber Singers and the two outreach choirs in Newton and Pella.
Conducting the choirs are Kristen Stanton, Artistic/Executive Director, Natalie Steenson, Jim Shutt, Jane Johnson and Joe Tangen. A wide-ranging selection of music, including songs about Iowa, the US and Latin America, rounds out the concert.
The IYC’s signature song, “Blessings” concludes the performance. This piece was composed by Katie Moran Bart when she was a student at St. Olaf College, Northfield, MN. Once of 14 children of an Irish American family, she set music to a familiar Irish Blessing text.
