History of the Chorus
The Chorus was established in the fall of 1975 with a performance of Handel’s Messiah on Sunday, December 7. Since then the Chorus has become an important part of the regional music scene and performs a December series of 4 concerts and a spring series of 2 concerts each year. The Chorus became incorporated as a non-profit organization in 1980 and is governed by a six-member board of directors. In 1985 the Chorus established an endowment fund to give financial stability to the organization and help fund special projects.
Today great music remains the focus of the Chorus and is annually enjoyed by capacity audiences. Chorus members come from throughout the tri-state area and the common bond is the simple joy of singing. Many professions and backgrounds are represented and the Chorus currently includes teachers, homemakers, farmers, attorneys, nurse and business people. Rehearsals begin on Tuesday evenings about 10 weeks prior to each program. Professional soloists and orchestra members perform with the chorus and the size of the orchestra varies with the requirements of the music.
All concerts are held in the beautiful Mercersburg Academy Chapel.
Concerts are free and the public is cordially invited.
A free-will offering is collected.
Seating is on a first-come first-served basis.
