Meistersingers has developed and been involved in an outreach program with local high school choral ensembles. Meistersingers conducts a rehearsal session with members of our group and the chosen high school's ensemble where valuable insights and experience are provided to the students and, of course, the professionalism and unique perspective of our director, Mr. Brian Dehn. With the combined rehearsal session completed, the ensemble is invited to join us at one of our Meistersingers concerts.
This has been a very successful program with students benefiting from the personal experiences of long-time singers and the attention to detail that may not be possible during typical school time rehearsals. Our audiences benefit from hearing wonderful high school groups and seeing that there truly is classical talent residing in our local schools. Meistersingers gets the benefit of seeing the future before our eyes.
Our 2017-18 season will be taking us to the campus of Foothills High School in Tustin. Their chorus will be participating in a March rehearsal and be joining the Meistersingers at our March 18th concert at Church of the Foothills. At that concert, we will announce the winner of our college scholarship. This will be the fifth year we have had this $500 college scholarship available and we hope to keep this program long into the future. We look forward to working with the Foothill Knights this season!
