Kids' Chorus Club offers summer session

   Gina and James Moore, Seattle area soloists and owners of a Bothell vocal studio, will teach a summer session of their Kids' Chorus Club. Any boy or girl age five to 12 is invited to attend without an audition. The Moores especially encourage monotones to take part in the session. "If children are taught to sing properly at an early age, there would be no monotones," James said. To register or for information, call 488-8175.
