The ideal facilities of Darien High School, and their energetic Choral Director Chris Andrade, again played host to a Chanticleer Youth Choral Festival - the 5th at Darien High School. Four groups participated ( a total of about 150 high school students) from Darien, Wilton, and New Fairfield High Schools. Ben Johns, Chanticleer Education Director, led the day, conducted the tutti numbers, and even demonstrated clog dancing and taught a few steps ( he was a dance major in college) despite having recently broken his right shoulder and having limited use of his right hand! He forged ahead nevertheless, with his customary high and positive energy. We warmed up, listened to each other sing, had workshops, and rehearsals, and sang a concert for friends and family in the evening.
