Angela Hughey Leads Choir for Kids

Excerpt from an article by Matthew Bernstein on OregonMusicNews.com, August 9, 2012.

Elevation Youth Ensemble began in 2010 with director and program creator Angela Hughey's desire to bring youth musicians together to perform and to give back to the Clackamas community.

Hughey, a 2010 Marylhurst University graduate with a bachelor's degree in piano performance, has been singing and playing piano for 25 years as well as teaching private piano and voice lessons for seven years.

Hughey initially established Elevation as a community-based choir for kids ages 12 to 18, but she soon realized that Elevation met a growing need as musicians in the area found school programs insufficient. Elevation began to evolve and now includes three choirs serving kids of various ages.

Perrin Dean, a Wilsonville High School junior, has been a member for two years.

"A lot of choirs have been cut and I didn't like it. So I loved that Angela started a choir where everyone is welcome. I love the other kids and how different we all are. Though, we still can be friends and be together because we all love music. This choir is incredible, everyone is dedicated, especially Angela. That's why I joined: to meet new people, to just sing and make music, and be a part of it," Dean notes.
