— A local children’s choir wowed the audiences gathered for Tuesday Tunes at the Centennial Square bandstand.

Valley Performing Arts Center’s Valley Children’s Choir, ranging in age from 5 to 16, brought out one of the largest crowds to the square to watch a Tuesday Tunes concert, organizer Kim Taylor Morris said.

She said only two more concerts remain on the summer schedule.

“These children were wonderful,” Taylor Morris said.

“I hope to see more at the next two concerts, which include ‘Living Message’ on Aug. 9 and local singer Sammy Jo Sartin and her band on Aug. 16,” she said.

The more than 60 young performers who sang and danced their way through the summer evening earned a loud support from the crowd.

Erin Martin, a group founder, said she was excited to have the children perform and is looking for more to join the center.

“We have so many talented children in our community,” she said.

Tuesday night’s performance is the second large performance the children had presented.

In mid-June, the children’s choir performed “Pop Rocks” at Sunnyside High School auditorium.
