COSHOCTON, OH – The Cardinal Chorale brought music to the ears of The Coshocton Presbyterian Church on February19th.
The ensemble made up of 35 young singers performed a variety of ballads for all who attended. The singers all met in July at the Cardinal Chorale Music Workshop at Muskingum University. Now, they’re preparing to take their music across Ohio on a seven-day tour.
“I was a singer in the Cardinal Chorale like 15 years ago. Now, I get to give back to this community that’s given me so much as an assistant director. It’s really great to see some things that have lived on in tradition, and also be a part of leading that work with young people who are leaders today, and also leaders of the future.” Cardinal Chorale Assistant Conductor, Chad Putka stated.
The Cardinal Chorale is an organization that has been around for more than 25 years. Applications are open now for young singers around Ohio who wish to dig deeper as choral musicians and want to be a part of a great community like the Cardinal Chorale.
“I don’t think I’d be a music teacher today if it weren’t for the Cardinal Chorale. Seeing the director, Chuck Snyder, as a teacher and mentor for me has meant so much to me. I’m now a full time music educator and it’s meant so much for me to be a part of this community. It has shown me not only music making at a really high level, but also what it means for a community to be united in its culture of positivity.” Putka said.
