Students of the Norwin Show Choir continued their long-standing support of the HEARTH Shelter (www.hearth-bp.org), which is a nonprofit organization that provides safe, affordable housing for survivors of domestic violence or other trauma.
For a recent service project, the Norwin Show Choir students organized a day at Kennywood Park on Sunday, September 8, 2019 for mothers and children living at the HEARTH Shelter.
The Show Choir organized a coach bus to transport the moms and kids from the HEARTH Shelter to Kennywood; arranged for a luncheon for the guests; provided the Show Choir’s signature music, dancing, and performance fun; and arranged for a special appearance from Kenny, the Kennywood mascot. Kennywood graciously donated a quantity of tickets for the event.
The moms of the HEARTH Shelter were grateful for the opportunity for their children, and they enjoyed getting to know some of the new Show Choir members. Mrs. Bridget Faulk, Norwin High School Choir Director, said: “Norwin Show Choir kids are the ‘good news’ for our district and our future. They made me very proud!”
This service project was made possible by a collaboration between Norwin Show Choir and the Expressions in Harmony Foundation (www.expressionsinharmony.org), which was founded in 2012 to help foster community service through music.
The Norwin Show Choir is the top performing choral ensemble at Norwin High School. Students audition each spring to be part of this select singing group. The group ranges from 30-40 singers in 10-12th grade. The Show Choir has performed from New York City, NY to Walt Disney World, FL.
