Broadway veteran Lynnie Godfrey creates children’s chorus – WFMZ
Broadway, film, and television veteran Lynnie Godfrey visited 69 News Saturday morning.
She currently lives in the Lehigh Valley but directs and performs in New York and around the country.
When she learned how little music education was available to students in Allentown, she decided to launch a children’s chorus – which is free of charge to the members and is funded, in part, through a grant from the Allentown School District.
Auditions were held in February and students have been rehearsing since then.
Children range in age from 6-12 years old and there will be 15 performing at the concert.
