Whidbey Community Chorus invites singers to join now
January 6, 2012 · Updated 4:15 PM
The Whidbey Community Chorus, under the direction of Chet Hansen, invites singers to join the chorus in preparing for its annual spring concerts.
This year the chorus will transport audiences to the Emerald Isle through “Letters from Ireland” by Mark Brymer. Drawing on actual texts of letters written from Ireland to America, and weaving them into a fabric of traditional Celtic melodies, Brymer has created a suite that is a powerful testament to the first generations of Irish immigrants to America.
Registration will be held Sunday, Jan. 22, at 5:30 p.m. at the First United Methodist Church, 1050 SE Ireland Street, Oak Harbor. Weekly practices are on Sunday evenings at the Oak Harbor Methodist Church, and concerts are scheduled for May 4 and 6.
Individual dues for the season are $30 for adults and $15 for high school and college students, 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.
