Forever Young and Chicago Children's Choir Perform Together at UMKC


The Conservatory is pleased to note that the Forever Young choir, directed by the Conservatory's assistant professor of music therapy, Melita Belgrave, presents a collaborative performance with guest ensemble the Chicago Children's Choir.

The FREE concert is Monday, April 7, 1 p.m., on the 4th floor multi-purpose room of the UMKC Student Union, 5100 Cherry, UMKC campus.

Forever Young is a senior rock ensemble inspired by the documentary Young@Heart. Unlike many traditional senior choirs, Forever Young learns contemporary and classic rock songs that are unfamiliar to many members. At a Forever Young Concert you are more likely to hear the choir perform songs by Mumford and Sons and Queen, rather than You Are My Sunshine and Bicycle Built for Two.
