McGRATHPR.com – South Shore Conservatory (SSC) invites singers in grades three through six who are interested in participating in the 2018/19 season of SSC Youth Chorus to an open rehearsal/pizza party on Monday, September 10, 5 to 6 pm at SSC’s Ellison Center for the Arts, 64 St. George Street in Duxbury.

The mission of SSC Youth Chorus is to bring students together to sing and learn in a supportive environment and foster a sense of community and joy through music. Chorus rehearsals are Monday afternoons, 5 to 6 pm, and the group performs three times during the year.

SSC Youth Chorus Conductor Peter Mundt’s goal for the ensemble is to grow his students’ love of singing and performing. A Marshfield resident and music educator with over 25 years of experience, Mundt provides students with exciting musical experiences that challenge them in a safe and supportive environment. In addition to teaching general music to elementary students in the Scituate Public Schools system, Mundt is a guitarist, bassist and singer who performs in and around the South Shore and Boston.
