Community chorus organizing for fall


Submitted story



Southern State Community College sponsors a community chorus called the Southern State Singers. The 19th season of singing begins on Aug. 21.

The chorus, under the direction of John Glaze, is a group for community participation as well as for college students. It’s for all who love to sing and enjoy the process of creating music together. The Southern State Singers perform concerts throughout the school year, presenting holiday music, light classics, show tunes and more.

Southern State has sponsored the community chorus for many years and the Southern State Singers have represented the college in our college community area through its performances. As the chorus begins a new season, it invites all those with a love of the joy of singing to come and join it.

Why join a community chorus? Thousands of singers all over the world participate in choral singing, enjoying for a lifetime that which may have started in elementary school. An estimated 32.5 million adults regularly sing in choruses today. Those who sing in choruses prove to be remarkably good citizens and are typically avid patrons of the arts, volunteer significantly more frequently than the general public, and exhibit greater civic leadership.

Choral singing is again on the increase in our country – come and be a part of it. Rehearsals begin on Aug. 21 at the SSCC Central Campus in Hillsboro at 6 p.m. in Room 107. The chorus looks forward to welcoming you. With the Southern State Singers, you’re only a stranger for a few minutes. If you need further information, contact the director by email at jglaze@sscc.edu.
