The Queen City Youth Chorus will present a concert on Friday, April 17 at 7:00 PM in the Church. They will sing music from South Africa and Venezuela as well as some classical and American favorites. Join us as we celebrate our season of music with boysa nd girls from Christ Church, Rama Road Elementary School, The Brookstone Schools, and St. John Neumann Church! A reception will follow.
This chorus is directed by Rob Ridgell and includes two ensembles:
3rd - 5th grades - Rehearsals: Wednesdays, 5:00 - 5:45 PM
Our strength is in our diversity, our love of music, and our dedication to young singers. We offer two annual concerts, sing for occasional Sunday services, and share our music throughout the city and beyond. For more information, contact Rob Ridgell at 704-714-6942.

This year, through Leap of Faith funding, we are able to offer some of our city’s finest instrumentalists a place to grow and perform. Charlotte Symphony trombonist and WDAV radio personality Tom Burge has put together a new brass quintet. We will help establish this new chamber ensemble by inviting them to serve as our “Artists in Residence” this season. They will perform for Parish Day, Veteran’s Day, Christmas, and Easter, and will provide beautiful trumpet and trombone sounds throughout the year. Most recently, one of the ensemble’s members, John Parker, played trumpet for the funeral of Anne Tomlinson. Welcome to the CLT Brass!
Our community music initiatives are now reaching over 150 singers. These include parish-wide programs (Children's Music Clubs, Youth and Adult Bands/Choirs), outreach chorister programs at Rama Road Elementary and the Brookstone Schools, and Senior Choir at The Cypress. For more information on how to join these music programs, or to volunteer, please contact Rob Ridgell at firstname.lastname@example.org or 704.714.6942.
