On Monday, April 23rd, at 7:00 p.m., Morgan’s Community Choir will present their annual spring concert at the Morgan High School Auditorium, featuring favorite show tunes and broadway musical numbers, including a men’s barbershop group comprised of members of the choir.
In 1998, Suzanne Carrigan, Lois Manning, and Jay Garfield organized the Morgan Community Choir as a means of gathering singers throughout the community and give them a forum to share their talents. This year signifies the choir’s 20th anniversary which currently has 39 members.
Lois Manning currently serves as the primary choir director, with Marilyn Lofgreen serving as co-director and Aimee Ferrin as accompanist. The choir is a non-profit and non-denominational organization managed by a Board of Trustees and a Board of Directors. Their primary objective is to showcase their talents for the entertainment and cultural enrichment of the community they strive to serve.
Each year, the choir provides two concerts for the community, including a Christmas and spring concert. The Christmas concert is a highlight especially for children as a beautiful concert full of classic and modern Christmas Carols is followed by a special candy-toting guest.
The choir is currently open to all individuals who want to share their musical talents. Practices take place each Wednesday evening beginning in September and continue through their spring concert. There is a twenty dollar fee to join the choir with proceeds going towards the purchase of new music.
This year’s spring concert promises to be just as enjoyable as a family-friendly activity for all ages. Whatever tastes in music you may have, this concert promises to be entertaining and a culturally enjoyable way to spend your spring evening!
