Performances are scheduled for April 28 at 8 p.m. and May 6 at 3 p.m. in St. Isaac Jogues Church, 3 Lord Place, Marlton.
Entitled “For Our Children: Remember, Reflect, Rejoice!” the performance of the 90-member chorus will feature “Requiem for the Children” written by Rishel, as well as a varied group of choral works that explore the lives of children in the modern world. Rishel’s requiem was written in memory of the children who perished in the 1995 Oklahoma City bombing.
Joining the Chorus is Symphony in C, formerly The Haddonfield Symphony. It is one of three professional training orchestras in the United States, preparing musicians and conductors for world-class careers through concert, educational and professional development programs.
ChildrenSong of New Jersey is a choral music education and performance program based in Haddonfield, providing quality music instruction to children between the ages of eight and 18. The chorus has performed at the Washington National Cathedral, the Kimmel Center, the Atlantic City Convention Center, the Mann Center for the Performing Arts in Philadelphia, St. Paul’s Basilica in Toronto, the Trapp Family Lodge in Vermont, the Canterbury Cathedral in England and various locations throughout Southern New Jersey. It also hosts educational events for area teachers and students, including an annual Children’s Songfest and various teacher workshops.
In recognition of National Child Abuse Prevention Month in April, portions of the proceeds from the performances will benefit Robin’s Nest, a non-profit children’s services organization dedicated to the safety and well-being of children.
