SRC Community Chorus

"...the arts have been an inseparable part of the human journey; indeed, we depend on the arts to carry us toward the fullness of our humanity.  We value them for themselves, and because we do, we believe knowing and practicing them is fundamental to the healthy development of our children's minds and spirits.  That is why, in any civilization - ours included - the arts are inseparable from the very meaning of the term 'education.'  We know from long experience that no one can claim to be truly educated who lacks basic knowledge and skills in the arts."

-National Standards for Arts Education

2021 PRODUCTION NEWS (as of Feb. 3, 2021)

We remain hopeful that we can offer live performances again by the end of summer.  That, of course, can change and we will continue to be extremely mindful of pandemic protocols and safety measures.  As of right this minute though...we announce...

THE MUSICAL WORLD OF DISNEY – A Revue of Disney songs from animated films, live action films, and Disney Broadway shows, directed by Carol Davis with musical direction by Tony Roberts.  Four performances – August 5, 6, 7 and 8, 2021.  Spoon River College Theater in Taylor Hall.

OUR ANNUAL WINTER CONCERT - December 4 & 5, 2021.  While this is planned as a live in-person event, we plan to include one or two virtual numbers so that members who live too far away to participate MAY join in.

No mini-concert is currently planned but that, too, may change and we will certainly let you know if we can fit one in between Disney and the Winter Concert.

Check back monthly for updated information or provide your email address to srccommunitychorus@gmail.com to be added to the monthly newsletter.
