Cara Lieurance talks with Fred Sang, the long-time artistic director of the Kalamazoo Children's Chorus and conductor of the Touring Choir. After a weekend performing with a production of The Nutcracker ballet, the young singers will be part of a Kalamazoo Symphony holiday concert on Dec 13, and then host their own holiday concert at 3 pm, Sunday, Dec 15 in Chenery Auditorium.
This is the last season for Fred Sang, who will step down as artistic director in the spring. Sang shares some of his favorite memories from his time with the chorus, which offers young people the opportunity to sing at a variety of levels. Sang also discusses the newly formed Coro de Ninos, a choir for children for whom Spanish is their first language.
