Do you want to meet in a small group before going to PYC (Presbyterian Youth Connection)? Come meet some friends who enjoy music.
Play an instrument? Great! There may be a chance to add that to our singing.
The Youth Choir is a musical offering for youth in sixth through twelfth grades. This choir meets weekly during the school year on Sunday afternoons from 4:00-4:50 in L304. It is a great place to meet other youth from a wide range of schools who all share the joy of making music together. We sing our faith, engage in meaningful fellowship, serve as worship leaders one Sunday each month and practice sound singing and choral techniques.
No prior singing experience is necessary! Please direct any questions to Kelly Gold.
Youth Choir is directed by Kelly Gold. Kelly became a member of White Memorial in 2010. In addition to leading Vacation Church School music, she has served as an accompanist for 1st and 2nd grade Church School music and is currently a music leader for 3rd, 4th and 5th grades. She is also a member of the Chancel Choir. Kelly has a Bachelor of Music degree in Voice Performance from East Carolina University, and earned her North Carolina teaching license for Music K-12 from Campbell University. For seven years, she taught middle school theatre art, musical theatre, music and chorus in North Carolina Public Schools. She and her husband, Jason, have two children, Wyatt and Eva.
On Saturday, February 6, ten members of our Youth Choir (Kelly Gold, director; Lora Zinsmeister, accompanist) participated in a hymn sing and youth choir festival celebrating Black History Month at Edenton Street UMC. Guest clinician and composer, Mark Miller, led the youth in rehearsal and in a closing service shared with the public. Some of our youth had the opportunity to sing under Mr. Miller at last summer's Montreat Worship and Music Conference. The event was inspirational and fun.
