DSCN6812COSHOCTON – Members of the Coshocton Youth Chorale performed their last concert of the season on Friday, May 24 at 7:30 p.m. at the Roscoe United Methodist Church. The group of high school students demonstrated their many talents as they not only sang everything from sacred music to Broadway show tunes, but a few members performed that evening on the violin, bass, drums, and trumpet during various songs. The choir is under the direction of Mr. Charles R. Snyder.

As many of the choir members will say, it’s not about the music that makes them keep coming back year after year, but their friendships they make on and off the stage.

“I made a lot of new friends and it’s really fun because you get to learn more challenging music,” said Sarah Holmes, first-year member, from River View. Holmes also previously performed in the Coshocton Children’s Choir, also directed by Mr. Snyder.

“We definitely go at a much faster pace,” said Sarah Kittner, first year member from River View, who also previously performed in the children’s choir. “It brings a new meaning to the songs. I’ve sung some of these songs in other choirs and it brings a whole new meaning to the song. He (Mr. Snyder) teaches life lessons that I’ll carry around with me forever. I’m a better person for knowing him.”

Austin Bible, fourth year member from River View, also said that Mr. Snyder has made an impression on his life as well as he takes the life lessons taught by Mr. Snyder and applies them to his own life.

“Mr. Snyder has helped me shape my life,” said Bible. “He’s been a huge role model in my life.”
