Coweta choral group headed to Scotland in 2014

On Saturday night, May 4, Masterworks Chorale presented its final concert of the season, “Music of the Big Band Era,” featuring guest band “Still Swinging” and the Centre Masterworks Youth Chorale.
At the concert, Newnan Mayor Keith Brady presented the youth chorale’s director, Millie Lanier Turek, with an official invitation for the group to represent Newnan in a cultural exchange with sister city Ayr, Scotland, in June of 2014. The request came from the Coweta Cultural Arts Commission.
The group is a newly formed community youth chorale of auditioned young singers with unchanged treble voices. Their age range is 9-14, and they are all outstanding members of their school choirs. The group began in September of 2012.
The group will spend next season preparing music of American genres and origins and music with Scottish influences to share with the citizens of Ayr.
Parents of young singers interested in auditioning for the group can visit the CMYC website for audition information at www.cmychorale.com.
Auditions will be held by appointment at the Centre on May 16 and May 28, 2013, and will include students wishing to be a part of the Scotland trip as well as those who want to be members of the CMYC but not go on the trip. To schedule an audition, email Millie Turek now at cmychorale@gmail.com
