Chester Children’s Chorus, under the direction of John Alston, performs its first spring concert next Saturday.

The Chester Children’s Chorus, 40 voices strong, will perform its first spring concert at 7 p.m. on Saturday, March 25, at the United Church of Christ in East Goshen. The United Church of Christ is at Route 352 and Greenhill Road, just east of West Chester.

The concert has been in the works for more than a year, said CCC executive director Kirsten Halker-Kratz, “and we look forward to meeting this community.” The program will include classical and sacred selections, from Mozart to spirituals, arranged by CCC’s artistic director John Alston. Founded by Alston in Swarthmore more than 20 years ago, the chorus has grown to include 130 boys and girls, aged 8 to 18, who are students in the Chester-Upland School District.

Donations will be accepted at this free concert. For information, visit chesterchildrenschorus.org.
