Young Singers in Concert at United Methodist Churches Illinois Y Group, First Youth Choir in Musical Events


Fenning, Esther Talbot, St Louis Post-Dispatch (MO)


Two United Methodist Church sanctuaries will provide the setting for youth concerts Sunday.

The Singing Y'ers Boy Choir from Bloomington, Ill., will perform at the 8:15 a.m. service at Faith United Methodist Church, 2950 Droste Road, St. Charles. The 52-member Youth Choir of First United Methodist Church will perform its year-end concert titled "Always There For You" at 11 a.m. Sunday and 7 p.m. June 21 at the church, 801 First Capitol Drive in St. Charles.

The Singing Y'ers was formed more than 35 years ago by a voice professor at Illinois Wesleyan University and the Bloomington-Normal (Ill.) YMCA. The boys, ranging in age from 9 to 14 years old, come from several backgrounds in the Bloomington area. Through the years, they have appeared in college productions and music series and performed in a variety of venues from churches to sporting events in this country and abroad. They are led by Brian Bond of Illinois State University. Faith UM is part of a tour that will take 19 members of the group to Springfield, Mo., Silver Dollar City and back to St. Louis on June 19-20 for the YMCA General Assembly Conference meeting. Selections from Sunday's program include "Sing Jubilate Deo," "Bless the Beasts and the Children," "Bring Him Home" (from Les Miserables), "Amazing Grace" and "Hallelujah! Clap Your Hands." The First UM Youth Choir, under the direction of Carole Langley, will perform "Always There For You," a musical featuring Christian contemporary rock and jazz music connected by a series of skits. The day after the June 21 concert, the choir will leave on a tour through Illinois and Wisconsin. Dee Jay Martin of Bloomington is co-chairman of the Y'ers tour and a parent of one of the singers. Martin and Langley admit that even though boys are tougher to recruit as singers, there is no shortage of kids who want to sing these days. According to their adult mentors, the young people regard the choir as a family and a means of social interaction. Both choirs depend on parental involvement. The First UM Youth Choir and the Singing Y'ers enliven their tours with visits to amusement parks, national monuments, architectural sites and museums. The concert season for the Singing Y'ers begins in September with an overnight camp retreat, where they combine musical rehearsals with outdoor activities. …
