Community Choir Rehearsal

  • Park Presbyterian Church 201 N Vermillion Street Streator, IL 61364 United States (map)

Calling all local singers! Consider joining our Community Choir this 2019 festival season, under the direction of Streator native Dr. Shelbie Wahl Fouts. We aim to host a 75-member strong choir, comprising of Young Artists, faculty, and musicians from across central Illinois.

Selections will include: “Be Like the Bird” (music by Abbie Betinis, words by Victor Hugo), “Gloria” (from Franz Schubert’s Mass No. 2 in G Major), “Tribute to the Armed Forces” (arranged by Lloyd Larson), “Where There is Light in the Soul” (by Elizabeth Alexander, setting of a Chinese proverb), “Alexander’s Ragtime Band” (by Irving Berlin, arranged by Teena Chinn), and “It’s a Grand Night for Singing” (from State Fair by Rodgers and Hammerstein).

Additional rehearsals will include: Monday, June 10th at 7:00-8:30 PM and Saturday, June 15th 1:30-2:30 PM with a Veggie and Fruit reception for participants before the 3:00 PM concert.

We ask for a $10 participation fee to cover the cost of providing music and binders for each singer.
