The Cincinnati Youth Choir, Young Naperville Singers and the Allegro Choirs of Kansas City will join forces to present “Songs from the Heartland: Youth Supporting UNICEF” on June 13 at 7:30 p.m. at National Presbyterian Church in Washington, D.C. The event is presented by Perform America.

The ensembles, which last performed together at Carnegie Hall back in 2021, will also perform at the Capitol Steps on June 13 at 10:30 a.m. and then at the WWII Memorial the following day.

“Each time we take singers on a tour, there are life changing moments and I’m sure this trip will be no different,” Angie Johnson, director of Young Naperville Singers, said in an official press release. “There is something magical that happens when young people sing together. Creating beautiful choral music together has a way of building an almost instant community and creating memories that are unforgettable.”

On the program are such songs as  “Be Like the Bird” by Abbie Betinis; “Ukuthula African Prayer for Peace” by Andre van der Merwe; “Hope Lingers On” by Andrea Ramsey; “Amazing Grace” arr. by Lee Kesselman; “Will the Circle” arr. by J. David Moore; “By Night” by Elaine Hagenberg; and “I Sing Because I’m Happy” arr. by Rollo Dilworth.

All proceeds from the concert will support UNICEF.
