Urban Community Choir
An Urban Community Choir was developed by teaching artist Eugene Perry, a professional singer in Pittsburgh. He led the kids in focusing on vocals and musical skills, including rhythm, breathing techniques, lines and spacing, and harmony. At the end of the camp, the children performed four songs – “Put a Little Love in your Heart,” Lean on Me” and “Smile by Kirk Franklin” – on July 19, which was ACH Clear Pathways Day by proclamation from the City of Pittsburgh. The audience loved the performance, and it demonstrated to the children the great outcome of their time, training and participation, and skill.
