Children's Choir Festival at BYU Jan. 24

The Brigham Young University School of Music will present the 3rd Annual BYUFOLKS Children's Choir Festival Saturday, Jan. 24, at 7:30 p.m. in the Joseph Smith Building auditorium.

Tickets at $5 per person and $20 for a family pass (limit of six persons) are available at the Fine Arts Ticket Office, (801) 378-4322, at www.byu.edu/hfac, or may be purchased at the door.

The concert will include more than 400 children performing varied music from 12 local children's choirs, which will perform separately and as a combined choir conducted by BYU faculty member Rosalind Hall.

The combined choirs will perform "If I Were a Fifer" by McNair and "Sing Alleluia" by 18th Century British composer Phillip Hayes.

BYUFOLKS is BYU's student chapter of the Organization of American Kodaly Educators, a nationwide organization for elementary music education majors. The Kodaly Educators are dedicated to enriching quality of life through music and the philosophies of Zoltan Kodaly, a renowned 20th century composer, linguist, music educator and humanitarian.

"The BYUFOLKS chapter provides preprofessional teaching and conducting opportunities and an opportunity to develop leadership for the 14 music education majors at BYU," said Jerry L. Jaccard, professor of music education and adviser to the BYUFOLKS organization.

For more information, contact Jaccard at (801) 422-3778.
