GILFORD — The community choral group Lakes Region Singers will launch its spring concert season with a first rehearsal on Tuesday, February 4 at the First United Methodist Church in Gilford.
“We are so pleased to see the size of our adult group continue to expand, and the youth chorus is growing by leaps and bounds. There is no audition, so all you need is a desire to sing and a willingness to learn," says director Karen Jordan.
The Youth Chorus for children ages 7-14 rehearses every Tuesday evening at 6:30 p.m., and the Adult Chorus rehearses on the same evening at 7:30 p.m. “We welcome more young voices, but we also want to reach out to high school singers in our community and encourage them to consider joining the adult chorus,” said Jordan. “It’s a great opportunity to start singing with a large group, and we do have fun. Whatever your age, come on out and give us a try.”
The spring concert dates are scheduled for Friday, May 3, and Sunday, May 5. The adult program will feature poems set to music such as “Set Me as a Seal” taken from the Song of Solomon, some love songs like “If I Loved You,” a jazz piece called “Dear Heart” which was made famous by Andy Williams, and selections from familiar musicals by Rodgers and Hammerstein. The youth singers will have some fun with a piece called “Jabberwocky,” and they will also join the adults for a combined performance.
