The Sun Hak International Children's Choir
by Nancy Kubo
Sun Hak International Childrenís Choir held its first national-level choir camp in Seattle, July 14 to 27. After 4 months of music learning at home, 48 youth from four states (see image) gathered for two weeks of intense rehearsal and extreme recreation, culminating with a professionally contracted performance for the Dedication Ceremony of the Korean War Childrenís Memorial in Bellingham. The eventís main speaker was Dr. Kim Suk San, Chairman of the Korean Welfare Foundation, which is responsible for all welfare aid being delivered to North Korea at this time. The choir also performed with Service for Peace youth in a music-and-drama event, and spent 3 days in recording sessions for its next CD.
Sun Hak International Childrenís Choir is Americaís 2nd generation youth choir. True Mother has personally supported the choir since it began in 1993, when she bestowed her name and Fatherís names in the choir name. This summer in Alaska, Father was very pleased to hear of the choirís progress, signed the camp logo (see image), and asked for the choir to expand and develop more.
The choir is open to all 2nd generation anywhere in the world who love to sing -- girls ages 9 to 18, boys ages 9 to 12. Next winter when announcements come out for the 2004 Sun Hak Choir camp, please respond and participate! Music will be sent out to learn at home, then participants will gather to rehearse and perform together as the 2004 Sun Hak International Childrenís Choir.
You may request a free 17-minute video CD of camp activities and performance, playable on Windows Media Player. Individuals are welcome to join the choir; also local chapters can be set up in any city. Nancy Kubo will assist in any way to help a local area to establish their chapter.
