Chorus has its sights set on Christmas

The Whidbey Community Chorus, beginning its 10th year under the direction of Chet Hansen, invites singers to join the chorus in preparing for its annual Christmas concerts.

The program features a variety of religious and secular music, from the chorus’s signature Christmas piece, Biebl’s “Ave Maria,” to “Fum, Fum, Fum” and “Ding! Dong! Merrily on High” as arranged by Wilberg. Also included are “Of a Rose, a Lovely Rose” from Rutter’s Magnificat and the much-loved “Hallelujah” Chorus.

Registration and the first practice will be held at 5:30 p.m. Sunday, Sept.18, at the First United Methodist Church, 1050 SE Ireland Street, Oak Harbor. Weekly practices are on Sunday evenings at the First United Methodist Church, and concerts are scheduled for Friday, Dec. 2 and Sunday, Dec. 4. Individual dues for the season are: adults $30, and high school and college students $15, payable at registration.  Women are required to purchase a chorus blouse for $37 or $42 depending on size; financial aid is available for this purchase.
