Oklahoma: The Cherokee National Youth Choir
has released its latest music CD, “Learning as We Sing.”
The new CD teaches Cherokee language skills using well-known music
for singing along. The music includes American patriotic, Cherokee, and Christmas songs.
“We’re extremely excited about this new album,” said Mary Kay
Henderson, CNYC’s director. “We believe it will be a learning
tool for young and old alike. The songs make the language
easier to comprehend, and hopefully we’ll start a new interest for
learning the Cherokee language.”
The Cherokee National Youth Choir is made up of 40 Cherokee youth in
grades 6-12. Singers must audition every year to be included. The
group has recorded eight CDs, and has received many national awards
for their music and ambassadorship.
