Various ensembles of the Heartland Youth Choir will present a mid-
winter concert on Sunday, February 25 th at 4 pm as part of the Fine Arts
Series here at WDMUMC. The concert will feature a variety of folk
song arrangements as well as sacred and secular pieces by Iowa
composer Elaine Hagenberg. All selections will be conducted by our
own Barbara Sletto, accompanied by West Des Moines music educator
Kathy Gedler.

Heartland Youth Choir, founded by Barbara Sletto in 2003, provides a
performance-based program for youth, emphasizing musical literacy and
character development. Heartland Youth Choir provides a unique
opportunity for children of diverse backgrounds with a particular
aptitude in vocal music to explore that interest beyond their school
setting. Quality literature from all styles and periods form the foundation
for this exploration.

Mark your calendars now to attend this inspiring Fine Arts event!
