New effort to restart community choir is under way

Tuesday, September 6, 2011


SIKESTON - It is several years since Sikeston's Community Choir has raised their voices together in song. But Thursday night could change all that.

Sikeston High School Choir Director Abe Leach is asking adults from throughout Southeast Missouri to join him at 7 p.m. at the Sikeston High School's choir room to help restart the Sikeston Community Choir.

Leach, who is in his fourth year as the school's choir director, said he has heard from a number of people about the community choir, its history and an interest in it reforming.

"I think there are quite a few people in town who would like to see the group happen again," said Leach.
