LAWRENCE, KS — The KU Youth Chorus will hold its final performance of the school year on Thursday, May 9, at 5:00 pm in Murphy Hall, room 328.

The chorus is a non-auditioned choir for children in the community enrolled in fourth through eighth grade. The KU Youth Chorus will be performing a variety of literature that they have learned under the guidance of director Debra Hedden, associate professor of Music Education and Music Therapy; Debbie Brown and Melissa Grady, both doctoral teaching assistants; Katie Hom, master's teaching assistant and the undergraduate general music methods students. Elizabeth Boresow, piano, Tanya Kholosho, cello, and Megan Bracciano, flute, will accompany the singers.

The program will include a variety of songs, including “Cuckoo” by Jane Taylor and “Old Time Rock ‘n Roll” by George Jackson and Thomas E. Jones III.
