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.
