Annual Spring Concerts: Let All the World Hear Music
Showcasing all 150 members of the Youth Choirs, Select Choir, Young Men’s Ensemble, Concert, and Chamber Choir at The Episcopal Church of Saints Andrew and Matthew.
The Wilmington Children’s Chorus will present a preview of our collaborative program with the Fulda Youth Orchestra in the summer of 2017. The program features music by Buxtehude, Mendelssohn, Bizet, Offenbach, Rollo Dilworth, John Williams, and more.
The WCC is proud to team up with the Sunday Breakfast Mission to address the issue of food insecurity in Wilmington youth over the summer months. 14% of Delaware children are food insecure, meaning they do not have reliable access to healthy meals. WCC wants to be a part of the solution – but we need your help! We will be collecting canned goods at our concerts on May 20 and 21. Please click here for more details!
