Harbor Country Singers (HCS), the area’s community chorus, begins rehearsals for its fourth series of Christmas Concerts on Wednesday, September 25 at the School of American Music’s Arts & Education (A&E) Center in Three Oaks. The rehearsal runs from 6:30-8pm, Eastern Time, and all are welcome to join. The ability to read music is not required, but chorus members are expected to attend regular rehearsals.
“It is at the rehearsals that preparations begin for what always proves to be an inspiring and magical evening of beautiful Christmas music,” says HCS Founder and Director Cindy Dryden. “This year’s offering will be ‘A Christmas Collage,’ featuring the talents of not only our group, but the gifts of an array of musician friends and creatives from our community.”
Participation in HCS is free, though donations are welcome, Dryden notes. For more information about HCS, go to the group’s Facebook page, Harbor Country Singers, or visit the School of American Music’s website, schoolofamericanmusic.com, and click on the Harbor Country Singers tab.
In addition to the Christmas Concerts, HCS performs traditional and patriotic songs at events throughout the year. Breakout groups are also being formed.
The A&E Center is located at 14 Maple Street in downtown Three Oaks, Mich.
