Plus, there was an extra-special holiday bonus for all the Floridians who miss winter: snow in the Kravis Center!
“Although a very busy time of year, this night becomes a chance for everyone to escape into the majestic surroundings of the Kravis Center’s Dreyfoos Hall, and let the children take you on a holiday musical journey,” noted Artistic Director, Shawn Berry. “All of these children have been rehearsing their music with quiet anticipation of thais night when they will sing out with joy and pride all that they have mastered with the guidance of the our highly esteemed artistic staff which includes Connie Drosakis, Carrie Leahy, James Paul, Betsy McHugh and Erica Barnes.”
Young Singers is proud to promote the spirit of peace and unity, not only during the holiday season but all year long. They are an organization which celebrates diversity and unification, boasting a diverse ethnic, racial and economic membership comprised of children from 123 different schools throughout Palm Beach and Martin counties. Young Singers of the Palm Beaches believes that music education is an important resource in the development of productive participants in our society. Berry goes on to say, “Music promotes confidence, creativity, community and well-being. When these children come together as one choir, they join their voices and make magic, a magic that does not separate or see race, religion, or social status.”
