SVCC Chorus Begins Rehersals

The Southside Virginia Community College (SVCC) Chorus will begin rehearsals at 6:00 p.m. on Sunday, September 10th. If you can read a little music and appreciate the joy of singing you are encouraged to come and join the chorus! Directed by Carol Henderson, the chorus is supported by SVCC as a non-credit class and the registration fee is $20.00 which includes all choral music and a full two-hour rehearsal each week. Registration takes place at our first and second rehearsals of each semester. Singing with us does not require an audition, but other experience with choral singing is a plus.

Our Christmas concert “This Is Christmas!” will be presented on Sunday, December 10th at 7:00 p.m. at the South Hill Presbyterian Church. And we are currently exploring some other performance options. The schedule will be available when you arrive for our first rehearsal on September 10th.

The concert on December 10th will feature a mix of favorite carol arrangements, and other traditional Christmas selections. We are hoping to feature local soloists, some instruments, some percussion, and perhaps a piano duet or two. The talented pianist,  Sally Tharrington, from Boydton, will be joining us again on the 88 keys!

Our rehearsals and concerts serve to enrich ourselves and our communities through the gift of music. We are grateful to the South Hill Presbyterian Church for the use of their facilities for our rehearsals and concert. And also thankful for the continued support of Southside Virginia Community College.

If you know someone who might read a little music and appreciates the joy of singing; please encourage them to come and join us! Please contact Nancy Turner at SVCC if you have any other questions about registration:  Nancy.Turner@southside.edu
