The Indianapolis Children’s Choir celebrates 30 years of music education and encouraging personal growth of young people all over central Indiana. Founder and Artistic Director Henry Leck has also announced his retirement from the organization at the end of this season. From its small beginning as one group of singers, the ICC has grown to become one of the largest and most prestigious children’s choirs in the country. Serving students from 18 months to 18 years of age, the ICC has touched thousands of young people around Central Indiana throughout its history.
Leck is officially passing the baton to the next conductor of the ICC, Joshua Pedde, at their 30th Anniversary Concert on April 30, 2016. With concerts at both 3PM and 7PM, the event will be a celebration of the ICC’s legacy and the singers that have gone through the program. Every piece in the concert will be brand new music especially commissioned for Leck’s farewell celebration.
Children ages 3 through 8th grade can experience the magic of the ICC through their summer camps. The ICC offers five different summer programs, including programs for singers with special needs, so children can experience the magic of the ICC’s education programs first-hand. Programs are offered at Butler University’s campus and at locations around the Indianapolis metro area. Each week-long program teaches students musical skills, professionalism, and personal growth skills.
