PLEASE JOIN US FOR OUR UPCOMING CONCERT!
ABOUT USSince its beginning in 1999, the Chorale has presented numerous concerts throughout the community. The chorus has collaborated with a variety of organizations, including the Battle Creek Community Chorus, the Hastings Community Band and the Concentus Vocal Ensemble of Kellogg Community College. Their purpose is to harmonize and have fun, learn good vocal techniques and share their efforts with the community.
The chorale meets twice a year for a minimum of eight rehearsals, at which time they prepare several selections to be performed at their Annual Spring and Fall show. Singers of all ages are invited to just show up and try us out. Reading music is helpful but is not a requirement. All voices are needed.
Dues are $50 per season. They are used to purchase music and pay for our director and accompanist. Rehearsals are held on Sunday evenings at Union City First Congregational Church (410 N.Broadway, Union City) 5:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m.
The 2018 Winter session will start on January 14. The Spring Concert is scheduled for March 11. Be sure to watch this web page or Facebook for more details. We're looking forward to seeing you soon and don't forget to bring a friend.
