The Blue Ridge Home School Choir helps children discover the discipline and delight of singing together. Anjie Grady, the choir’s founding director, started the choir in 2003 to provide homeschoolers a quality choral experience. Thirteen-year-old member Nathan Williams says, “I’ve been in the choir since it started six years ago. It’s been a gratifying experience. You can come together with other homeschoolers and learn to sing a wide range of songs. And there’s a concert with food!”
The choir will perform a free concert of African and Israeli songs on Tuesday, Nov. 18, at 7 p.m. in the chapel of Arden Presbyterian Church in Arden. This year, the choir is being directed by Timothy Wilds, founder/teacher of the Soundings Studio for musical, choral and vocal training. He is serving as interim director while Grady is on maternity leave. For more information about the Blue Ridge Home School Choir, call 333-1700 or www.freewebs.com/brhsc. The choir will be welcoming new members starting in January 2009.
