THELMA: The Fond du Lac Children’s Chorale returns

Thelma Sadoff Center for the Arts (THELMA) announced today that their resident ensemble – the Fond du Lac Children’s Chorale will return this summer.

“It’s hard to put into words how much we have missed the students rehearsing at THELMA every week. However, we can say announcing that the program is back brings us pure joy,” said Jacqui Corsi, THELMA’s executive director.

The Fond du Lac Children’s Chorale is a community chorus comprised of fourth through eighth grade students, from Fond du Lac and the surrounding communities, interested in performing and studying high-quality choral music.

The Children’s Chorale is an organization where children are encouraged to express themselves. Members build relationships with peers who are serious about music making. The rehearsal environment is creative, nurturing, educational, enjoyable, and supportive. Members regularly move into leadership roles in their chosen high schools, successfully performing in their choirs, bands, on stage, as soloists, and in ensembles.

Eva Thelen-Dunphy is the new artistic director and is a Fond du Lac native, a soprano, violinist, and choral conductor with a passion for promoting the arts in our community.

“We are thrilled to add Eva to the team at THELMA,” said Jacqui Corsi, THELMA’s Executive Director. “Her passion for the arts is matched only by her tremendous talent. We look forward to seeing what she will bring to our amazing Children’s Chorale.”

The Chorale rehearses Monday evenings, September through May. Upcoming audition dates are available by appointment only. Please call THELMA at 920-921-5410 to schedule your audition.
