Petierunt uti sibi concilium totius Galliae in diem certam indicere. Nec dubitamus multa iter quae et nos invenerat. Integer legentibus erat a ante historiarum dapibus. Nihil hic munitissimus habendi senatus locus, nihil horum?.
The Bangor Area Children’s Choir is a two choir organization. The Treble Choir is a training choir comprised of singers turning 9 during the academic year through age 16. The Youth Chorale is auditioned from the Treble Choir, changed male voices, or at the discretion of the director. Youth Chorale members will be no older than 19 years of age during the academic year.
One of the important features about BACC is that it is set up to be a long-term activity and experience that grows and deepens throughout the years of the singer’s involvement. We know that college admissions offices look at extracurricular activities – and we also know that what really matters to them is not the number of activities, but, rather, consistent involvement in a limited number over a period of years. The staff and board of BACC work hard to have our organization be one that gradually and consistently builds musical expertise, character, poise, sensitivity and understanding of other cultures and eras, friendships with singers from a wide variety of backgrounds and locales, and leadership skills. BACC is an organization that teaches young people how to sing better…but it is much, much more than that!
Robert Ludwig’s career has been focused on the training and performance of choral ensembles and has always included work with children and young people as a critical part of that work.
Board of Directors
RECORDING SECRETARY—Jill Hoelzer
ARTISTIC DIRECTOR—Robert Ludwig
MEMBERS AT LARGE
The BACC Singer’s Council is a group of three to five representatives of the Youth Chorale and Treble Choir. They are selected each semester by the Artistic Director and must have sung in BACC for at least one semester. Since there are many excellent, conscientious singers in BACC, participation on the Council is rotated among singers. On the other hand, some singers, because of their experience, age or future career plans, may be repeatedly selected.
The purpose of the Singer’s Council is to advise the Artistic Director, who has complete authority for making decisions about repertoire and advise the BACC Board, that has complete authority for making decisions about other practical and financial matters.
The Singer’s Council is also charged with helping in various ways during rehearsals, concerts and activities – including organizing other singers and assisting in maintaining appropriate behavior.
BACC wants your talented child to join our group and benefit from auditory training and vocal development. BACC’s artistic director selects a repertoire that is appropriate for the developing voice. It is also a fun and safe environment for your child.
