      Performance Trips


      Since we began in 1991, Hamilton-Gibson has been committed to the children and youth of our community. Our first performance during the school year was a moving exploration of the children of Terezin in Czechoslovakia. We incorporated music which was sung by 65 area children. (Over 100 auditioned.) Seeing the incredible response of these children to some very challenging music, we saw the need for an outlet for young singers. We began the HG Children's Choir with 20 singers in grades 4-8, growing now to four choirs with singers ranging from grades 2-12, from four local districts and private and home schoolers.

      Since we began the choir in 1996, hundreds of children and teens have participated and have sung hundreds concerts. They have sung with the Williamsport Youth Orchestra and the Mansfield University Symphony Orchestra. They were featured in Mansfield University's performances of Carmina Burana, both at Mansfield and in Corning. They have sung for the Little League World's Series most years since 1996. They were selected as the feature choir to work with world-renowned children's choir director Jean Ashworth Bartle from Toronto at the American Choral Directors Conference in 2002. The choir was designated Tioga County's Singing Youth Ambassadors by the county commissioners, and also Pennsylvania's Singing Youth Ambassadors by the state legislature.

      Three choirs, grades 5 – 8, and men and women grades 9 – 12, have conducted performance tours in Harrisburg, New York City, Washington DC, Toronto, performing with groups such as the Newark Boys Choir and the Maryland State Boys choir. In 2003 the combined choirs traveled to Prague, Czech Republic on a goodwill tour and were able to visit and sing at Terezin. The Choirs embarked on a Goodwill Performance Tour to Brazil in March of 2006. They have performed in every county in the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania - Pittsburgh, Erie, Philadelphia, Harrisburg, Gettysburg and MANY small towns in between. The effort culminated where it began, in Harrisburg at the Capitol, in May 2015.
