We take very seriously the need to create a safe environment for choral rehearsing, as well as the safety and comfort of our audiences during performances. As you have undoubtedly noticed, seizing control of the COVID-19 virus is far from being realized.

The members of Lakeshore Community Chorus have experienced the grief of COVID-19 deaths and break-through cases in our own members and families. It is for these reasons that the LCC will take a break from rehearsing and performing until this virus is under reasonable control.

There is no doubt that, when the day arrives that we can once again be safely together, the LCC will rebound without skipping a beat! We look forward to the time when we will be able to sing for you again.

Beginning the week of September 26, and continuing bi-weekly through the holiday season, you can experience past performances of the LCC via videos on our Facebook page and this website. We’re releasing only one song at a time: think of it as a musical coffee or cocktail break. Those on our mailing list will receive a special biweekly eblast announcement that will include the YouTube link to our “Midweek Musical Moments.” If you haven’t joined our mailing list yet, this would be a great time to do so!

Together in Harmony

Another one of the LCC’s favorite songs is KUIMBA. We created a virtual choir performance of this song for our “Together In Harmony” concert in honor of Larry Sharp who passed away this past February. Larry was a long time member of our bass section and president of the LCC Board of Directors for the past 6 years. Kuimba was one of Larry’s favorite songs

This African-style original work by Victor C. Johnson is an a cappella selection (no piano accomp) with a rhythmic groove established by percussion instruments and ostinato (repeated pattern) in the bass/tenor sections. Kuimba is an invitation to sing: Come, let us sing. Let music be our guide. Sing with a joyful heart. Sing of Peace. Sing of love.
