Spotlight: Clover Choristers, Lake Wylie

August 27, 2013 

Focus on: Clover Choristers, Lake Wylie

Owner: Angie Sulls

What’s new? This is the Clover/Lake Wylie’s first community chorus exclusively for elementary school-age children. The Clover Choristers is accepting children ages 5 to 11 who love to sing. Enrollment ends Sept. 5. While the emphasis is on choral education, the group will incorporate musical theater by performing “Schoolhouse Rock Live Jr.” in spring 2014 through a collaboration with the Clover Youth Theatre Company and the N.C. Blumenthal Center for the Performing Arts.

Services offered: Developing a love for singing through certified choral instruction. Four choirs available, according to age and ability: Kinder Choristers, ages 5-6; First Voices, 6-8; Apprentice Chorale, 8-10; and Concert Choir, 9-11. Rehearsals are held weekly at Good Samaritan Methodist Church in Lake Wylie.

Brief background: Angie Sulls says she is blessed to have enjoyed the past 10 years of her career teaching music at Clover’s Crowders Creek Elementary School. Her choirs have performed concerts and musicals, including “Willy Wonka,” “Annie” and “Seussical Jr.” this past summer.

As she searched for a choral program for her daughter, she realized that this was a void that needed to be filled. She enrolled her daughter in the Charlotte Children’s Choir, and experienced the workings of a successful community chorus. Since so few children are able to travel to Charlotte, she is thrilled to partner with local educators and parents to initiate a quality choral program for all children to serve the community in song.

Mrs. Sulls says: “With so many talented children and supportive families, how can we deny them the opportunity to explore their true potential?”

Motto: “Inspiring the artist within.”

Hours: After school, rehearsals once a week. Planned performances: Holiday Concert Dec. 7; “School House Rock Live! Jr.” April 3; and Celebrations Concert May 17.
