This year, The RVCC has partnered with a local early childhood education advocacy organization, Smart Beginnings of Greater Roanoke, for our very first Roanoke Valley Children’s Choir Choristers Caring Concert.
A portion of the proceeds from the 4:30 p.m. community concert on April 22, 2018 will benefit the Smart Beginnings’ “Musical Fences” projects in the Roanoke Valley at various preschool and child care centers. These beautiful fences are installed on playgrounds to help some of the very youngest musicians in our area learn to appreciate music and enhance their play.
At our fall retreat, a representative from Smart Beginnings made a presentation to the choristers of the RVCC about Smart Beginnings and the musical fence project. Choristers have also donated some items to help build the fences and some choristers will be able to help put them together and see children enjoying them!
