Update from Jolynn Paige of Paige Pro Communications!
Over 300 people attended the 15th anniversary gala celebration of the Leelanau Children’s Choir and Youth Ensemble, under the stellar direction of Margaret Bell. Approximately 70 students, some returning alumnae, performed at Northport Community Arts center last Friday evening (June 20th). The audience was thoroughly entertained by several of costume changes and crowd pleasing favorites from current broadway musical hits ranging from Les Miserables to Wicked. Guest singer Guy Molnar brought his professional stage talent to the spotlight as he sang “All Good Gifts” from Godspell and “Mr. Cellophane” from Chicago.
Smiles and hugs abounded, and a fabulous, classy catered event (Silvertree) following the concert brought people together under a candle-lit canopy. Guests were serenaded by a string trio and munched on local strawberries covered in chocolate and other Leelanau County local delicacies.
The board of the LCC/LYE gave out three generous scholarships to graduating seniors Hans Dalton, Sophia Mosher, and Juliana Lisuk. This tradition will now be continued in future years.
