SANBORNTON — The Mountain Lake Chorale will be performing in the Sanctuary at the Sanbornton Congregational Church on Saturday, April 14 at 7 p.m.

The concert will be followed by a dessert social in the Undercroft. Donations for the church will be accepted at the door. The public is welcome.

The MLC was founded in the spring of 2009 by two music teachers who retired to New Hampshire, one from Michigan and one from Pennsylvania. Wendy Dillingham wanted to organize the group but not direct it and Leslie McDonnell agreed to be the Music Director.

The Chorale has 10 members from all over Central New Hampshire who drive a total of 400 miles each week in order to rehearse, just for the love of making music together. They have performed in local retirement homes and churches and the Veterans Home in Tilton and for First Night Wolfeboro this past New Year’s Eve.

Collectively, the individuals in this group have performed in 13 different states and 13 different countries and they have sung with over 100 different groups for well over 400 accumulated years. They have been involved in 43 musicals and operettas and 7 members play 9 instruments. The members bring their vast experience and enthusiasm to rehearsal each week for the pure joy of singing together.

If you would like the MLC to perform for your group or function, contact Wendy Dillingham at 603-253-6646 for information.
