Meet the Arts Organization: Winston-Salem Youth Chorus
Choral singing provides young people with an exciting entree into the world of music, and a lifetime of arts appreciation. Over the past 20 years, children in and around Forsyth County have thoroughly enjoyed their experiences rehearsing with and performing in the Winston-Salem Youth Chorus, under the direction of Founder and Artistic Director Barbara Beattie. The Executive Director is Lori Prescott. In November 2013, they celebrated their big 20th anniversary concert in the Stevens Center. On the program were audience favorites plus a world premiere by renowned composer Dan Locklair set to a new poem by former NC Poet Laureate Fred Chappell. Winston-Salem Youth Chorus members Daniel Prescott, Paul Gunter, Josh Boose and Olivia Wright shared their thoughts with David Ford.
