Ames Children's Choir, Sawyer Speaks

Leanne Harter, Story County Outreach and Special Projects Manager announced spring events from Story County before we launched into a preview of the 14th Midwest Children's Choir Festival to be held at CY Stephens Auditorium April 21, 2017. Shon Stephenson, Executive Director of Ames Children's Choirs, and Dr. Christina Svec, Director and Conductor of Concert Choir of Ames Children's Choirs, discussed the special qualities of children's voices, as well as the Midwestern Regional Culture of choral singing.

Shifting from singing to poetry, KHOI showcased some of its many programs featuring poetry including a recording of Sawyer Speaks Spoken Word Poetry Program coordinated by Sawyer Staff members Riley Drake, Nicole Coronado, and Natalie Stowe whose mission is "to support and empower students on their journey to finding their voice as community based activists and accomplices in active solidarity with one another."
