“It’s a grand night for singing!”

Every Tuesday night, beginning March 14, will be a grand night for singing as the second annual Sisters in Song begin rehearsals that will culminate in a performance alongside the Pagosa Springs Girls Choir (PSGC) on May 9.

Rehearsals will be held from 6:30 to 8 p.m. at the Community United Methodist Chusrch and will continue each Tuesday at the same time, in the same place, until the performance.

Sisters in Song, a community women’s chorus is again being sponsored by the PSGC to give the young girls of the PSGC the opportunity to work and perform with lifelong musicians in Pagosa.

“We have many talented singers in Pagosa, and I’m hoping they will be willing to share their love of music with the girls,” said PSGC Director Linda Parker.

The women will sing several musical selections at the concert, as well as one selection with the PSGC.

The annual Spring Concert will be on May 9.

“Although no prior experience is necessary, we are asking for a $10 fee to help offset the cost of music,” said Parker. “All you need is a love of singing.”

If you haven’t registered, there’s no problem. Just come and sing. Come and experience the “music connection” next Tuesday, March 14, at 6:30 p.m. at the Community United Methodist Church.

If you have any questions, please call Parker at 264-1434 or email her at singpagosa@gmail.com.

Plato once said, “Music is a moral law. It gives soul to the universe, wings to the mind, flight to the imagination, and charm and gaiety to life and to everything.”

This will certainly ring true in Pagosa this spring. The PSGC members will cross generations and connect with other musicians as they invite ladies in Pagosa to sing with them on their spring concert. We hope to see you on March 14.
