This fall, two new choral directors will take over the Clarksville Community Chorus and the Clarksville Youth Chorus, and the two programs are looking for interested singers. The choirs are part of the choral classes offered by the Austin Peay State University Community School of the Arts.
Kristina Waugh will lead the Clarksville Community Chorus, and Veronica Stem will serve as director for the Clarksville Youth Chorus. The adult choir is for individuals over the age of 18, and the Youth Chorus is for students in elementary and middle school.
“If you enjoy singing and making beautiful music, then you should join the Clarksville Community Chorus,” Waugh said. “We are comprised of singers of all ages, from all walks of life and at all levels of musical experience. We offer people who love music an opportunity to sing and improve their vocal skills in an encouraging and friendly environment.”
Interested singers are not required to audition for the adult or the children’s choir. Stem said the youth program allows children to socialize while learning musical concepts.
“I think it’s a great opportunity for the kids to develop skills of working with other children,” she said. “We’ll be singing, but we’ll also be learning how to read music and learn some music theory.”
Both choirs will host a performance for the Clarksville community at the end of the semester. For more information on costs and rehearsal times, contact the Community School of the Arts at APSU at CSA@apsu.edu or 221-7508, or visit the website.
