It's that time of year...

Yes, when you have to get about thirty people in gear and tune for a holiday season, you start early. Rehearsals begin on Tuesday, September 14, at 7:00 p.m. and bring your friends. Make this the best year yet, for this group of music-minded singers.

You don't have to be a pro, just keep tune and mark the beat. The rest falls in place as eyes learn to read, ears learn to hear and hearts meld together in the joy of song.

Choir director, Gary Sherwood, says he has a few new songs to add to the repertoire, which inludes lots of wonderful holiday classics, contemporary carols and sacred and solemn compositions.

The choir begins its 5th year this month. There is a core group of about twenty who have been together since its inception and others have become a part of the group when they saw how much fun it can be to sing in their community. Some have extensive musical background, some a little and there are folks who just couldn't help themselves and finally had to jump in...who doesn't like to sing?

Don't be shy, just show up at the LDS church on Banks Lowman road in Garden Valley on Tuesday night. The choir meets once a week in the lovely music room, which the church has generously offered for rehearsals. For information, call Gary Sherwood at 462-2500 or Rich Wilson, at 462-2250.
