The Children’s Choir of Huntington County is celebrating 25 years of artistic choral excellence with three special concerts to be presented this year.

The first concert, scheduled for Saturday, Nov. 4, at 7 p.m. takes place at St. Peter Lutheran Church. Titled “Yesterday,” the concert will feature former directors of the Children’s Choir. Directors Alena Coffman and Hersel Cremeans will each return to direct a song. Huntington University’s Dr. Joni Killian, a former director of the choir, will be featured with the singers as well. Dr. Joann Rediger, the first director of the choir 25 years ago, has gone on to become a choral professor at Taylor University. Dr. Rediger will direct the closing song for the concert.

The Children’s Choir’s first concert of the year celebrates the past, hence the title “Yesterday.”

The Winter concert is titled “Today,” and will include CCHC alumni talents in collaboration with current singers. The final concert of the year will be called “Tomorrow,” and the focus will be on the future of the Children’s Choir of Huntington County.

Children’s Choir of Huntington County consists of three choirs: Children’s Choir for unchanged voices third grade and up; CopperSound, a high school a capella ensemble; and Joyful Songsters, a choir for teens and adults with and without disabilities.
