Peninsula Singers recruiting, have rehearsals in Sequim
The Peninsula Singers is working towards a return and is looking for additional singers to bolster its ranks.
This well-established community chorus that features performances of classical choral music and selections from Broadway and popular genres is under the direction of Dr. Jerome Wright with accompanist Mark Johnson. The program for the fall concert has traditionally been in November but has been rescheduled for a January date.
Rehearsals are 7-9 p.m. on Thursdays at Dungeness Valley Lutheran Church, 925 N. Sequim Ave.
Dues of $100 per semester are asked to help defray costs, including scholarships for local music students. All singers will be required to bring verification of complete COVID-19 vaccination to the first rehearsal. Masks will be worn and social distancing will also be practiced. Singers need to be able to read music, and must have solid choral experience.
For more information, contact Dr. Wright at email@example.com to discuss participation and schedule an audition.
