Singers invited to audition

Lakeshore Community Chorus would like to invite local singers, including high school and college students, to join the chorus for the upcoming spring session. Auditions will be held in late January and February in order to check each singer for their vocal range and music listening and reading skills. Rehearsals generally occur weekly on Thursday evenings at the First Congregational Church in Saugatuck and will begin March 2nd, culminating in the spring concert on May 21st at the Saugatuck Center for the Arts.

The theme for the spring concert is “Route 66 Road Trip.” The chorus will be “driving” the audience along the famous and historic Route 66, starting in Chicago and ending in Los Angeles. Some of the selections to be performed include “Route 66,” “Sweet Home Chicago,” “Shenandoah,” “Kansas City,” and “Hooray for Hollywood.” Several songs will incorporate an instrumental jazz combo.

In addition to a spring session, the chorus is active in fall and winter. It performed its first live holiday concert since the onset of Covid 19 to a soldout crowd this past December. Some members of the chorus also sang for the holiday market at the SCA and the annual Saugatuck Holiday parade. A performance at Freedom Village in Holland was fun for all in attendance (including the chorus!). LCC also hosted the first annual community holiday carol sing-a-long at Coughlin Park. “We are greatly looking forward to bringing more music to our community this spring,” said Nancy Plantinga, Artistic Director for the Lakeshore Community Chorus.

Singers interested in auditioning should contact Nancy Plantinga, or 616 405 3399, to schedule an appointment.
