YOUNG SINGERS PROJECT TO APPEAR ON NATIONAL TELEVISION WITH PETULA CLARK AND FRIENDS

The talented high school singers who comprised the Virginia Chorale's Young Singers Project in January and February will appear on PBS television in a nationwide December telecast of "A Sign of the Times", celebrating the music and career of British star Petula Clark.

Invited by the Virginia Arts Festival in cooperation with WHRO in Norfolk and PBS, the singers participation in the May 20 and 21 performances at Chrysler Hall reflect both past hits by Ms. Clark ("Don't Give Up", "The Wedding Song"), and her broadway career ("I Dreamed a Dream"). In addition, participation by guest stars Lou Rawls and Richard Carpenter add to the celebration of Petula Clark's long career and many musical associations.

The Young Singers Project is comprised of talented high school singers from all around Hampton Roads. They were selected by rigorous audition, and participated in an intense schedule of rehearsals in January and February, and received mentorship from the Virginia Choralešs professional singers. The YSP roster includes students from 9th to 12th grade, and auditions are held annually for this extraordinarily talented ensemble.

The Mission of the Virginia Chorale, the Commonwealth of Virginia's only Professional choral ensemble, is to foster enjoyment of and education about the choral art in Hampton Roads and beyond, through the performance of a broad repertoire of choral music by the highest caliber of professional singers.
