DURANT, Okla. – The Southeastern Hub for Arts Resources in Education (SHARE) is again opening auditions for the SHARE Children’s Chorus for all interested singers in grades 3-8.

The Chorus meets from 6-7:30 p.m. on Tuesdays during the school year and performs at least once a semester.

Past performances have included Southeastern Candlelighting; Texoma Choral Festival in Sherman, Texas; Music for Family and Friends; Calera Historical  Society Christmas Program; Children’s Chorus from Carmen with the Sherman Symphony; Red River Children’s Choir Festival; and a joint concert with the Children’s Chorus of Greater North Texas.

SHARE is a non-profit organization dedicated to providing all children in the Texoma region with excellent arts experiences to enrich their lives and the life of the community. The Choir is not limited to those who have musical experience or are deemed “talented.” There is a place for all students interested in participating and all students are encouraged to sing and learn in the SHARE Children’s Chorus.

Walker said, “The intent is to develop a top-quality choir that will represent the Texoma region around the states of Oklahoma and Texas and beyond. Students will learn to sing, read music, perform in an ensemble and appreciate quality children’s choral literature.

“In addition to this, the singers will be developing personal attributes such as concentration, responsibility, attention to detail, desire for excellence and social skills.”
