ERIE, Pa. — The Young People’s Chorus of Erie, a youth outreach program of the School of Humanities and Social Sciences at Penn State Behrend, will hold open rehearsals next month for its 2019-20 season.
Open rehearsals give young people between the ages of 7 and 18 the opportunity to attend a rehearsal, meet the staff, and learn about YPC Erie. The chorus is northwestern Pennsylvania’s first comprehensive youth choral music program, with children from 28 different schools.
The rehearsals will be held at Penn State Behrend and First Presbyterian Church of the Covenant, located at 250 W. Seventh St. in Erie, during the weeks of Sept. 3 and 10. To register for an open rehearsal, call the YPC Erie office at 814-898-6789.
