Williamsport Civic Chorus announces 2016-17 season

The Williamsport Civic Chorus will begin its 73rd season at 7 p.m. Sept. 12 in the Fellowship Hall at St. Mark’s Lutheran Church, 142 Market St., as rehearsals get underway.

The 2016-2017 season will be an exciting and varied one, as the Chorus will present three independent concerts and will participate in performances with two area arts organizations.

The first two concerts will be held the weekend of Veterans’ Day, Nov. 12 and 13, in Mill Hall and Williamsport, respectively, and will feature patriotic music in a “Salute to Veterans” of the armed forces.

The theme of sports and athleticism will shape the Feb. 5 concert, “The Body Electric.”

On Feb. 14, the Chorus has been invited to perform with the Williamsport Symphony Orchestra in its presentation of Gustav Mahler’s “Resurrection” symphony. Lastly, the Chorus plans an unprecedented collaboration with the Uptown Music Collective in late May, presenting a rock concert filled with music and effects that will bring down the house.

For more than 70 years, the dedicated singers of the Williamsport Civic Chorus have gathered together for the common purpose of perpetuating the richness and diversity of choral music for the enjoyment and edification of audiences and singers alike.

The Chorus welcomes new members and invites anyone who wishes to participate to join during the first two weekly rehearsals on Monday evenings. There are no auditions.
