BISMARCK, N.D. - The Central Dakota Children's Choir (CDCC) is celebrating 22 years of singing. Three hundred children will be performing for the CDCC annual fundraiser called, "An Evening to Inspire- A Celebration of Children's Voices" on Sunday, Nov. 3.
It's a night where you'll hear talented kids from public and private schools in our area sing and tell inspiring stories and more. The proceeds go to CDCC and the children I spoke to said this is one of their favorite past times.
An evening to inspire is exactly what you will get.
Sunday night is the children's first performance of the year.
"It's just great being a part of the choir because it's just like so beautiful harmony and such beautiful voices," said Andrew Gardner.
But, none of them seem to be nervous, just excited to share their passion with the audience.
"It's just so different from all the other things, and it's not just the choir singing its also people like giving speeches and stuff that other people give and it's really fun," said Grace Goettle.
It's taught them to create friendships and leave their comfort zone.
"Before CDCC I was really really shy, I wouldn't like talk to people if I had the chance too, and I definitely wouldn't have done the speech if I had the chance," said Avery Hoit.
Kids in the choir say being a part of this group has inspired them to be confident in who they are, embrace each others different personalities and share their common interests with the rest of the community.
Evening to inspire will be at the Ramkota Hotel Ballroom in Bismarck at 5 p.m.. for more information go to aboutcdcc.org.
