Mission Valley Children’s Choir starts season
News from Mission Valley Children's Choir
RONAN — The Mission Valley Children’s Choir will begin its fifth year on Wednesday, Oct. 2, at the Faith Lutheran Church, 406 Fifth Ave. SW. Refreshments, “together time” and rehearsals will be held from 3:45-5:30 p.m. every Wednesday.
The choir is open to children from the Mission Valley in grades two through six. The directors of the choir are Mrs. Cathy Gillhouse and Pastor Seth Nelson. Robyn Carlson is the accompanist and Kim Detert is the assistant. Refreshments will be served each week and participation is free of charge.
It is Gillhouse’s goal to expose the children to many different styles of music throughout the year, ranging from multicultural, spirituals, folk songs, show tunes, patriotic, sacred and seasonal.
Cathy Gillhouse is the former Ronan School Choir teacher and director of the Ronan Show Choir. She taught music for 41 years. She has also performed in 20 Port Polson plays and musicals and she is presently harpist for the University of Montana.
Pastor Seth Nelson has been participating in choirs for 26 years. He composes and performs his own music and has had several years of teaching experience. He has also sung internationally. He will direct the choir and accompany the choir on guitar and drums.
Cathy said she and Seth are very excited about directing the choir for its fifth year. They hope it continues to be a fun and educational activity for Mission Valley children.
