WESTMINSTER- The 40 young singers in the Kurn Hattin Homes for Children’s Select Choir have been chosen to compete on the third season of the public television series “Together in Song,” the choral competition series produced and aired by public television member station WGBY in Western New England. This children’s group, under the direction of Lisa Bianconi, has overcome various challenges to get to this point, and is the first chorus from Vermont to be selected to compete in the series, which highlights nonprofessional children’s and adults’ choirs in various musical genres.

Kurn Hattin Homes co-executive director Connie Sanderson announced the choir’s acceptance at the school’s winter Family Day celebration when the children’s parents were visiting campus.

“Together in Song,” hosted by Springfield Symphony Orchestra Maestro Kevin Rhodes, will air on WGBY on Saturday evenings at 8 beginning on March 23. The Kurn Hattin Homes choir will compete with 37 other choral groups in 10 categories according to age and musical genre. Each week, a panel of judges as well as viewers vote for the best group in each category. The competition culminates in a live final performance at the historic Paramount Theater in Springfield, MA, airing Sunday, April 28, on WGBY.
