Rehearsals are now under way for the Belleville Community Chorus winter concert, Joy-Hope-Love, set for Dec. 11 at First United Methodist Church.
The group welcomes singers from 16 through 96 to join the chorus, whether new voclaists or veterans who have sung with the members in the past. Soprano, alto, tenor, bass or undetermined, the chorus, under the direction of Mary Loring, is open to all who love music and singing, a spokesman said. To join, arrive at the church a few minutes before 7 p.m. any Monday and expect a warm welcome, he added.
Non singers interested in helping coordinate the organization or work behind the scenes are also welcome, he added.
The award-winning chorus is a nonprofit organization of volunteers who love to sing. The chorus performs a variety of choral music for the enrichment, education and enjoyment of members and audiences in surrounding communities.
First United Methodist Church is located at 417 Charles St. in Belleville. For more information, contact Mary Larivee, (313) 310-2614 or Claudia Roullier at (734) 697-8235.
