The Paris Community Choir is currently seeking members for its new season.
As part of Paris Community Theatre, the fourth season began on Sept. 9, with rehearsals at 7 p.m. on every Monday evening at the First United Methodist Church in the Fellowship Hall.
Under the direction of Pat Fowzer, the choir is currently preparing for the 25th anniversary of the Songs of the Season Christmas concert, which will be held Dec. 3 in the sanctuary of East Paris Baptist Church at 7:30 p.m.
“There will be some unique and new surprises at this year’s concert to celebrate this musical milestone, which the audience and performers should find exciting,” PCT board member Tim Wood said.
You do not have to be from Paris to be a part of the choir, and there is room on the squad for all returning singers and any newcomers.
“Anyone who loves to sing the beautiful music of Christmas, will be satisfied with such favorites as ‘O Holy Night’ and ‘Breath of Heaven,’” Wood said. “The choir will also be preparing a cappella Christmas favorites, some show tunes, a spiritual and the traditional ‘Hallelujah Chorus’ from Handel’s Messiah.“
“Some of the selections will be chosen to challenge the singers and yet allow them to grow in musicianship and musicality under Ms. Fowzer’s guidance,” he said. “The community choir truly offers adults the ability to experience the gift of music.”
Rehearsals are open and are a great way to learn for those interested in singing in a choral group.
Paris Community Theatre and its board of directors sponsor the Paris Community Choir, along with this year’s corporate sponsors for the season, Young Title Company and the Law Offices of Sydney Young.
Questions about joining the choir may be sent to Pat Fowzer at firstname.lastname@example.org or those interested may attend a rehearsal on any Monday evening at 7 p.m. for information on joining.
