The Fort Wayne Children's Choir will present its 40th Anniversary Celebration concert at 4 p.m. Sunday at Rhinehart Music Center at IPFW, 2101 Coliseum Blvd. E.The concert will feature all seven of the Children's Choir's ensembles, a news release said.

They will perform pieces by Gwyneth Walter, Dan Kallman, René Clausen and other composers. The program also will include “Life Has Loveliness to Sell,” a piece the Children's Choir commissioned to have written by Dominick DiOrio, assistant professor of music at Indiana University in Bloomington. DiOrio will conduct the Children's Choir's Concert Choir as it performs the piece.

The Fort Wayne Children's Choir started 40 years ago with one ensemble as the Children of Peace Choristers, the news release said. It has grown to a current average annual membership of 255 students, and it has served more than 5,000 young people during its history.

Organization founder Jocelyn Basse and many former staff members are expected to attend the anniversary concert.

Tickets are $10, adults; and $5, students and seniors. They are available by calling IPFW's Larson Box Office at 481-6555 or at the door.
