GILFORD — Lakes Region Singers, a community choral group, will begin rehearsing for its fall concert schedule on Tuesday, Sept. 23.
The Youth Chorus (for singers in grades 2-8) will meet at 6:30 in the First United Methodist Church in Gilford, and the Adult Chorus (for singers in high school and up) will meet at 7:30. "We welcome everyone interested in performing good music, and we don't require auditions," said director Karen Jordan. "If you know anyone who might like to join our groups, encourage them to come, or bring them along with you."
At its advisory board meeting on Monday, Sept. 15, the group discussed ways to increase its outreach to music lovers throughout the Lakes Region. The Advisory Board is comprised of Jordan along with LRS members Mary Albert, Kelly Cleveland, Charlotte Cox, Lorraine Gebhardt, Paul Stickney, Betty Welch, and Rachel Young.
Jordan said, "Our membership as well as our audience has grown steadily during the past couple of years. And the creation of our Youth Chorus has expanded the age range of our musical appeal. Our advisory board continues to offer new ideas and new interests from the community."
There will again be two performances of the Christmas Concert, one on Friday, Dec. 19, and another on Sunday, Dec. 21. This year's program will include traditional favorites like "Winter Wonderland," and "Joy to the World," as well as arrangements of "Festival Gloria" and a medley called "Irving Berlin's Christmas." Some pieces will be performed by the Youth and Adult Choruses together, and some will feature vocal soloists, along with flute, organ, brass, percussion, handbells, and four-hand piano accompaniments.
