The Pagosa Springs Girls Choir (PSGC) will complete another exceptional year of singing with the presentation of its spring concert on May 9 at 7 p.m. in the sanctuary of the Community United Methodist Church.

This year’s theme, “It’s a Grand Night for Singing,” will feature a variety of music, including some nostalgic tunes from decades past. In addition, the choir will host a performance of the Women’s Chorus, Sisters in Song, which will not only perform its own selections, but will also sing a combined number with the Girls Choir.

“Having the Sisters in Song perform with the girls exemplifies the phrase that music is a lifelong skill,” said PSGC Director Linda Parker. “Most of these ladies are not professional musicians, yet they continue to enjoy music and performing. It is such a great opportunity for the girls to see this as a reality so that they, too, may continue to sing and perform throughout their life. Also, by singing a combined song with the Sisters, the girls will learn to blend their voices and to interact with other musicians. With the women’s chorus sharing the stage, the girls will gain another perspective on the importance of music in a person’s life.

“We hope that Pagosa will come out and join us for this wonderful musical mix of impressive talent from our own community. We are so grateful for the support from these gifted musicians as well as the support and love for the Pagosa Springs Girls Choir from the Pagosa Springs community itself.”

Admission to the PSGC spring concert is free. Donations that support the choir’s educational and music programs are, as always, gratefully accepted. For additional information about the concert, call Parker at 264-1434 or email singpagosa@gmail.com.
