Dr. Jule Youth Chorale

Program – Dr. Judie Meulink, Artistic Director, Youth Chorale, presented the Classic Arts Program Choir.

Reverend Richard Anderson started the Warsaw Community Choir in 1984 to promote the performance of Handel’s Messiah and other sacred works by Community Singers in conjunction with the Grace Community Orchestra. From this experience, Classic Arts Programs was established in 1991 by Reverend Anderson. In 2001, the Lakeland Youth Chorale was created to provide high-quality choral instruction to children outside of their school and church experiences.

Classic Arts Programs, Inc. exists to enhance cultural and spiritual life in the Warsaw area through the quality performance of diverse choral works, enabling singers of all ages to grow musically and personally through the rehearsal process and other activities.
