The members of Natchitoches’ First United Methodist Church received a pleasant surprise as Lafayette’s Chorale Des Amis Youth Choir of Acadiana performed a variety of pieces at the traditional service Sunday 24 Mar.
The choir was at Northwestern State University for a clinic on choral skills taught by Dr. Nicholaus Cummins, Director of Choral Activities & Assistant Professor of Music at NSU’s College of Creative and Performing Arts. Dr. Cummins is also the choir director at First Methodist and he invited the youth choir to perform at his church.
The Chorale Des Amis Youth Choir of Acadiana is composed of three choirs and 60 youth ages 7-18. The choir is in its second year and has members from 20 Acadiana schools.
