The Lake Land College Community Choir will begin its fall rehearsals Tuesday, Sept. 27. Rehearsals will be held on Tuesday nights in the Lake Land College Theatre from 7-9:30 p.m.
The choir is a group of approximately 55 mixed voices including students, college employees, and members of the community. All singers age 18 and older are welcome to participate. No audition is required.
Choir members may earn one hour of college credit for singing in the choir. Interested singers can complete a registration form at the first rehearsal, or register online.
“The number of students who choose to participate in the choir continues to grow every year,” said Nancy Caldwell, music instructor at Lake Land College and director of the choir. “Singing is a wonderful way to manage stress, and singing in the choir allows students to make new friends while earning credits toward graduation.”
Registration for college credit is not required, however, and participation in the choir is free for those who do not register.
The fall season will conclude with a concert on Sunday, Nov. 20th, at 3 p.m. in the Theatre. After a Broadway opener from Gypsy, the concert will feature a set of gospel songs. The rest of the program consists of a variety of Christmas carols, featuring the traditional favorites “The First Noel” and “Do You Hear What I Hear,” as well as less familiar British carols such as “The Sussex Carol” and “The Rose Tree Carol.”
