Celebrate the Rock Valley Children’s Choir’s 10th Anniversary
at their “I Hear America Singing” concert, “How Can I Keep From Singing?”
The Rock Valley Children’s Choir presents a performance in celebration of its 10th
anniversary in its annual “I Hear America Singing” concert, “How Can I Keep From Singing?” on
Friday, May 18 at 7:00 pm at First Presbyterian Church, 406 North Main Street in Rockford.
Admission is $10 for adults. Free admission for children 10 and under.
The Rock Valley Children’s Choir was established in 2002 by Leah Baskin and Dean Durst.
Beginning as one small choir, the program has grown to four separate choruses which encompass
grades one through twelve, now directed by Leah Baskin. Each choir operates during the fall and
spring semesters, rehearsing once a week and performing in several concerts per semester. The
Rock Valley Children’s Choir formed a partnership with the Mendelssohn Performing Arts Center in
2006. Mendelssohn PAC provides office and rehearsal space and processes choir registration.
Since 1884, the Mendelssohn Performing Arts Center has been a source of quality music experiences for the residents of northern Illinois. Mendelssohn PAC, a non-profit organization
located at 415 North Church Street in Rockford, serves the community with a wide range of
concerts, youth music programs and performing ensembles for all ages. www.mendelssohnpac.org
