The choir was conceived by Terri Foster, artistic/executive director of the Louisville Youth Choir and former choir director for Sacred Heart Academy. "The purpose of Lascito Coro is to unite the alumnae of SHA and LYC by developing the only all-female adult choir in the Metro area," Foster said.
Lascito Coro is directed by Terri E. Foster and accompanied by Thomas A. Seacat. The Louisville Youth Choir will begin its 49th season in August and is annually comprised of over 100 singers from more than 60 schools and home schools in the Louisville area and six surrounding counties.
