Carnegie Children’s Choir
Carnegie Children’s Choir was founded in Fall 2008 to give young students in the Greenbrier Valley an opportunity to cultivate and develop their level of musicianship, through the art of singing. Susan Adkins, Executive Director of Carnegie Hall, and music educator for over 29 years in the Greenbrier County Public Schools, directs the choir, assisted by Leah Trent, Education Director of Carnegie Hall. The program is presented with financial assistance from the West Virginia Division of Culture and History, and the National Endowment for the Arts, with approval from the West Virginia Commission on the Arts.
Admission to the CCC is based upon auditions. Auditions for the fall semester will be held on Tuesday, September 9th from 4-5:30 PM in the Auditorium at Carnegie Hall, 105 Church Street, Lewisburg, WV. All children, ages 9-14 who enjoy singing are encouraged to audition. Singers will be asked to sing on verse of "America the Beautiful". Rehearsals for CCC will begin the following week and will be held on Tuesday afternoons from 4-5:30pm.
The CCC hopes that each singer will also be a member of their school and/or church choir, if one is available. This is mutually beneficial, since the musical skills and proper attitudes learned in each choir can be shared with others.

Auditions will be held in the Auditorium of Carnegie Hall on the second Tuesday in January, from 4-5:30pm in the Hamilton Auditorium at Carnegie Hall.
