Join the Taunton Civic Chorus Holiday Season
Rehearsals are underway for the Taunton Civic Chorus holiday season, and it’s not too late to join the fun!
Open rehearsals will be held for the next few weeks on Thursday at Berkley Congregational Church, 13 South Main St. Berkley from 7 to 9 p.m.
No auditions are necessary and all voices are welcome.
The holiday program, entitled Gold and Green, will feature familiar Christmas classics such as “Silent Night” and “Carol of the Bells” as well as the theme from the well-loved Christmas movie Elf. The concert will also include Andrew Lloyd Webber’s “Pie Jesu” from Andrew Lloyd Webber’s Requiem which won the Grammy Award for Best Classical Contemporary composition in 1986.
The concert will also feature the South Coast Bell Ringers. This group of musicians was formed more than 15 years ago. Led by Diane Ennis of Berkley, the group performs concerts at senior centers, nursing homes and other community locations during the winter holidays and in the spring.
The chorus is led by Music Director Chris Hoskins and accompanied by Jameson Ward.
The Taunton Civic Chorus is the area’s longest running choral group and has been an important part of the cultural life of Taunton since 1959. In addition to presenting an annual spring and holiday concert, the TCC performs at local events such Raynham Tree Lighting, private functions, and local church services. Each year, TCC proudly awards a scholarship to a young person entering college who has been involved in the performing arts in high school.
