As fall approaches, the Pagosa Springs Community Choir is planning to begin rehearsals for the Christmas Concert. The first rehearsal is scheduled for Sept. 10 in the high school band room at 6:30 p.m.

The choir is again planning a concert filled with joyous music for the season, to include such favorites as “Glad Tidings of Joy,” “Carol of the Kings” and “Joy to the World.” The Jazz Ensemble is also performing two upbeat, fun selections. Dan Burch is directing the choir this year, and Venita Burch is again the accompanist.

We look forward to all of our previous singers returning, but we also hope to have new members join us. If you enjoy singing and would like to join this very talented group, we look forward to meeting you. We will not be performing a spring concert next year, as there are too many conflicts for our director, accompanist and many choir members. If you are planning to be a part of the Community Choir, our Christmas Concert will be your only opportunity until next fall.

The first rehearsal on Tuesday, Sept. 10, begins at 6:30 p.m. for registration, and rehearsal is held from 7 to 8:30. Each member is requested to pay $20 for the cost of music and binders.

Subsequent rehearsals are held each Tuesday from 7 to 8:30 p.m.

Concert dates are Dec. 6, 7 and 8.

If you have questions or would like additional information, call Betty Schwicker at 731-3363.
