Too busy last fall? Here’s your chance at not regretting you missed it again
Ok. Last fall you heard about the River Country Community Choir and their invitation for prospective members to come join the rehearsals for the upcoming Christmas Concert.
“What fun” you thought. “I’ve always liked to sing and haven’t ever been in a choir so I’ll give it a try.”
Then you missed the first rehearsal. After all it was the day after Halloween and there was a lot to do but next week you planned to attend.
But there was that birthday party at the inlaws so it didn't work out. The following week you had a cold and then, well, it was nearly Thanksgiving and so much to do and you hadn’t even begun Christmas shopping so…
Regrets and a little ‘wish I had done that’ aside, here is your chance at following through with that desire to share a bit of song in a choral group, meet some fun and very cool folks and take to the stage at the Dogwood to be a part of a truly community choir that will present a lively Spring Concert to an appreciative audience.
The Choir will begin rehearsals on Tuesday, March 28th from 6:30-8:30pm and will continue these practice sessions each Tuesday through May 16th.
Then on Sunday May 21st at 3pm the work from those rehearsals will come to fruition for what is hoped to be a sparkling performance.
Rehearsals are held at Newaygo United Methodist Church, 101 State Road in downtown Newaygo.
No tryouts. The only requirements are high school age or older, a commitment to attend most if not all the rehearsals and, most importantly, one must enjoy singing. Of course if you made it this far into the article there is a high likelihood you enjoy singing.
Of course if you have choir experience that’s a plus and that includes being a singing shepherd in the 2nd grade Christmas Pageant.

“Then the singing enveloped me. It was furry and resonant, coming from everyone's very heart. There was no sense of performance or judgment, only that the music was breath and food.”- Ann Lamott, Traveling Mercies
