The BG Singers
The Community Arts Center will be under construction from October 16, 2017 through May of 2018.
Construction Project at the Community Arts Center
The BG Singers, the Buffalo Grove Park District’s community choir, is looking to fill spots for their upcoming 2018 season. Auditions will be held on Tuesday, February 6 from 6 - 7:30 pm at the Buffalo Grove Park District Community Arts Center, located at 225 McHenry Road in Buffalo Grove.
Prospective singers should prepare a song that highlights their voice, to be performed either a cappella, with a recorded track, or with a provided accompanist. Auditions are booked by appointment only. Please contact Linda Rosen at 847.682.4632 for more information, or to reserve your audition slot.
The Larry Berkowitz Arts Scholarship
The Berkowitz Fine Arts Fund was created by the Larry Berkowitz Family, honoring Larry, a 14 year member of the Buffalo Grove Singers, who passed away 7 years ago. To honor his many years with the Singers, his family established a fund to help children participate in the arts.
The Buffalo Grove Singers match the funds contributed by the family annually. With this Fund, we have given college bound students who are majoring in the arts scholarships, brought instruments to inner city schools, and even brought instruments to New York children after Hurricane Sandy. We have helped local schools in the area acquire equipment needed for their arts programs. We also help fund scholarships (through the Friends of the Parks Foundation), so that children can participate in classes in the arts. This year, we have partnered with the Marriott Theater organization and Vernon Township in giving 50 children a very special theater experience.
We are very excited to be involved in giving back to the community in many ways. We accept contributions on behalf of the Berkowitz Fine Arts Fund through the Friends of the Parks Foundation. Donations are graciously accepted and will be put to good use to fund many projects in the future.
If you are interested in donating to the Berkowitz Fine Arts Fund, please contact Cathy Novak at 847.793.0245.
