Lakeshore Community Chorus

Lakeshore Community Chorus Jan2019

The Lakeshore Community Chorus would like to invite local adult singers to join the chorus this spring. The ensemble will resume its in person rehearsal schedule beginning March 24 through the middle of June after a two-year hiatus due to Covid 19. LCC deferred singing in person to avoid the complications of Covid and to keep its members and audiences safe.

“We know more now as the result of developments in the science, and have consulted with the county health department, the CDC, and national organization Chorus America,” said Chorus president Shirley Sutton. “We are at a point where we feel we can resume singing in person with protocols of 100% membership vaccination, mask wearing, and social distancing. We will be rehearsing in the sanctuary of the First Congregational Church of Saugatuck, a large room with tall ceilings, in one hour rehearsals.”

LCC artistic director Nancy Plantinga said, “We are so looking forward to singing again, to reconnect as a chorus family and re-engage our singing muscles and skills.” The chorus will be rehearsing songs of hope and inspiration. LCC hopes to present an outdoor performance of these songs at some point in late spring/early summer. “We just have to wait and see how things unfold with the variants and within the chorus itself. This is going to be a different kind of singing season, but the most important thing is that we move forward!” Plantinga added.
