Like the rest of our Island community, the Island Community Chorus, with over 100 members, was getting restless and frustrated. Weekly snowstorms forced the cancellation of our Monday night rehearsals.
The Old Whaling Church was filled with harmonies this week as the 115-member Island Community Chorus practiced for its annual holiday concert, which takes place Saturday night and Sunday afternoon. This year's program features lighter fare than previous concerts, including a bouncy arrangement of Jingle Bells.
The Island Community Chorus, along with soloists and a full orchestra, last weekend completed two powerful performances of Felix Mendelssohn’s St. Paul at the Martha’s Vineyard Regional High School Performing Arts Center.
