Running update - we've been busy!
Campanella Children's Choir has seen some vigorous activity in the past couple of months. We are working full-speed toward preparing for our cornerstone event coming up in November of this year -- the Carnegie Hall Residency, which you are supporting right here! (remember, it's all or nothing, help us reach 100% in by the deadline)
Just a week ago, we performed in the 2012 Russia Day Gala at the Chicago Cultural Center, where we were joined by some of Chicago's finest musicians. Campanella Children's Choir performed pieces from our Russian Folk repertoire, including Kolokol'chiki (Bell flowers) and the all-time favorite Poidu l' ya, vijdu l' ya (Would I go for a walk), and Zima (The Winter). You can also listen to audio of the last two pieces by streaming online from Campanella's website (select from list on the right-hand side of the page)
Tomorrow, on Saturday June 23rd, we are proud to be performing at Northbrook Public Library in a concert dedicated to the memory of the Holocaust. Please let us know if you would like to attend this special presentation. The performance will include the highly emotional song "Butterfly", from the collection of poems written by the children in Terezin Concentration Camp. You can listen to this song at the 44:00 minute mark on the 98.7FM WFMT's Introductions program, where Campanella performed live last month (download here)
