The Spoon River College Community Chorus will present Songs and Snowflakes on Dec. 2 and 3, 2017 at 7:00 p.m. at the First Christian Church in Canton. As has become the tradition, this season’s concert will feature classical, traditional, sacred and secular songs in a variety of musical styles and instrumental accompaniments.
Participation in the SRC Community Chorus is open to anyone with a love of music and performance. No auditions are required, and all ages and vocal ranges are welcome. Rehearsals will be held on Thursday evenings beginning on Sept. 28th at 6:30 p.m. at the Canton Church of the Brethren, located at 3rd and Chestnut. The concert is conducted by John L. Davis and accompanied by Gretchen Fuller. Tickets go on sale Oct. 16.
“The organization originated in 2005 and has grown to include over 100 singers, musicians and technicians,” said Carol Davis, artistic director. “We have raised funds to establish five $10,000 named endowed scholarships. The generous support of participants and audience members enables students to pursue their educational dreams.”
A sixth named endowed scholarship has been established through the SRC Foundation in memory of Vicki Murphy, mother of founding chorus member Chad Murphy, who recently passed away. Proceeds from the entire 2017-18 Chorus season will be dedicated to this scholarship.
The Chorus recently presented sold out performances of the comedy Vanities. Also in December, the SRC Chorus and Tenacious, Inc. are producing the hilarious holiday comedy A Tuna Christmas featuring John L. Davis, Chad Murphy, and Clay Klinedinst playing over 20 roles. A Tuna Christmas will be presented at Big Horse Vineyards Dec. 16-17, 2017. The 2017-18 season concludes with the Tony-awarding winning musical Fiddler on the Roof, June 28-July 1, 2018.
