Young Singers plan winter concert

WESTFIELD-Students of Young Singers of Greater Westfield will fill the Church of the Atonement with the sounds of the holiday season on Dec. 14.

“Young Singers has a mix of students from different schools, grades and towns who come together to celebrate a love of music,” said Kerry Cipoletta, artistic director. She also serves as choral music director at Westfield Intermediate School, and teaches the fifth and sixth grade choruses and sixth grade general music. Cipoletta is also the director of the drama club at Westfield Intermediate School.

Cipoletta noted that the choir features students in grades 5-8 who rehearse weekly to develop vocal skills, musical literacy, and a “beautiful choral sound.”

The concert is offered free to the public with a freewill offering planned.

“We invite the public to hear some beautiful music and get in the holiday spirit,” said Cipoletta.
