Young Singers of the Palm Beaches prepare for the 6th annual golf classic
The Young Singers of the Palm Beaches’ 6th annual golf classic will take place Oct. 26 at the Mayacoo Lakes Country Club, 9697 Mayacoo Club Drive, West Palm Beach. Registration begins at 11:30 a.m. and is followed by a 1 p.m. shotgun start.
The $175 registration fee includes entry, tournament play, range balls, greens and cart fees, a goodie bag, free lunch and on-course beverages, including beer. The tournament is a scramble format and will include a 50/50 raffle, mulligan purchases, putting contests, door prizes and on-course promotions. All proceeds will benefit the talented children of Young Singers of the Palm Beaches (YSPB).
Several music educators in Palm Beach County, including Shawn Berry, Michael Yannette and Connie Drosakis, established Young Singers of the Palm Beaches. Each founder has extensive experience in music for the young voice, and enjoys local and national recognition for their accomplishments. They envisioned a children’s choral organization that would not be constrained by school boundaries, religious affiliations, racial bias, socio-economic barriers, or funding cuts to arts education.
This dream was realized during the summer of 2003. YSPB’s first choir season began with 79 singers. In a decade, Young Singers has grown from this grassroots concept to a viable force in the choral community, with approximately 350 singers, in grades 3 through 12. They have performed locally, nationally, and internationally. Young Singers, Palm Beach County’s premiere community-based children’s choir, is based at the Kravis Center for the Performing Arts.
Upcoming concerts include Winter Tapestry, a seasonal show, on November 23, at the Kravis Center. Tickets may be purchased by calling the Kravis Center’s box office or online at www.kravis.org.
