St. Paul United Methodist Music and Art (SPUMMA) will feature Nebraska Wesleyan University Children's Choir Camp students at a free concert at St. Paul's, 1144 M St., Friday, June 14 at 12:10 p.m. This concert will take place on the second Friday of the month instead of the regularly scheduled first Friday.
The camp will be directed by conductor Elaine Quilichini -- one of Canada's finest choral conductors, recognized for her exceptional musicianship and acclaimed work with choral ensembles. In demand as a clinician, lecturer, adjudicator and guest conductor, Quilichini holds a bachelor of education degree from the University of Saskatchewan, a master of music (Kodály) from Holy Names College in Oakland, California, and associate and licentiate diplomas in piano performance.
An art exhibit in Paine Parlor will feature the extraordinary artwork of Ruth Langon, who is a co-op artist with Noyes Gallery. The exhibit will remain in place through June 30. The McKinley Bells, played by Brent Shaw, will be heard from the church tower and also broadcast into the Sanctuary prior to the concert.
Lunch ($5) is also available in the Paine Parlor beginning at 11:30 a.m. and following the concert.
