Community chorus rehearsals begin Feb. 4
Rehearsals for the Haywood-Junaluska Community Chorus Spring Concert will begin at 7 p.m. Monday, Feb. 4, at the First United Methodist Church, 566 S. Haywood St., in Waynesville. The concert date is Sunday, May 5, at the church.
The first major work will be “Lux Aetema” (Light Eternal), by Morten Lauridsen, a contemporary composer. The performance of this work will be dedicated to the children of Newtown, Connecticut.
Interested singers are welcome to join the chorus with no audition required. Chorus member dues are $10 per concert, which goes toward music expense.
David Traynham is the director, with Cynthia Henderson as accompanist.
The chorus is sponsored in part by the Haywood Arts Council and the Junaluskans, a civic organization of Lake Junaluska. For information, call Opal Miller at 734-9283.
