Kurn Hattin’s Grammy-nominated Music Director, Lisa Bianconi, started the event in 1992 in order to bring area youth choruses together and give them a chance to perform and be inspired by one another. The event has been an annual success ever since. “Performing for peers outside of their own school setting is a great confidence builder,” said Bianconi, a 30-year veteran Kurn Hattin teacher, “The students really enjoy it and they put on a fantastic show for the audience, too.”
This event is open to the public. Admission is a canned/dry good or cash donation for the food shelf at Our Place in Bellows Falls. The concert takes place in Higbie Auditorium in the Mayo Memorial Center at Kurn Hattin Homes in Westminster (www.kurnhattin.org). For more information, contact Lisa Bianconi at (802) 721-6931.
