Following our sold-out Christmas Concert the tempo didn’t diminish for the Choral Society. Our immediate action was to deliver 11 huge bags of toys to Deep Well on the Island and Bluffton Self-Help. These were the donations from the audience members and singers at the concert. Both agencies were delighted to receive them and a lot of children were treated to a new toy at Christmas. Our thanks to all who donated.
Next on the schedule was our second Music In Homes fundraiser which drew an appreciative audience to the home of Judy and Bill Thorpe for “Cookies, Carols, & Canapes” with a smorgasbord of holiday songs presented by our holiday quartet, Tim Reynolds, Kathy Burmeister, Gayle Lang and Rick Johnson.
January brings the start of rehearsals for our first-ever Choral Festival, to be performed April 2 at Holy Family Church. This festival brings together the talents of 5 choral groups from different genres. Each group will perform individually and then come together for a grand performance of Paul Basler’s Missa Brevis and Psalm 23, conducted by the composer himself. Featured groups are from Avila University, Charleston Southern University, St. John’s Episcopal Choir in Savannah, the May River High School Chorus, and the host, Hilton Head Choral Society. Hear the power of over 150 diverse voices.
Tickets are available online on this website. All seats are reserved. Order now for prime seating.
