Community Chorus to perform concert on Sunday

Tuesday, May 15, 2012

CHARLESTON -- Last fall's concert by the Charleston Society for the Arts Community Chorus proved so popular with its audience, they asked for more.

Not wanting to disappoint, the group has reconvened for a spring concert.

Set for 7 p.m. Sunday at the Charleston United Methodist Church, the Charleston Society for the Arts Community Chorus Spring Concert will feature a diverse group of 30 to 35 musicians and singers from the Charleston community.

"We had this great audience the first time, and we thought: Who would've known?" program director Kerry Davis recalled. "This is our second time, and we're really excited and kind of nervous about it."

The nervousness comes from knowing the public likely has high expectations for the second concert, Davis said.

"I think they'll find this repertoire is very interesting and thought-provoking -- probably more so than what they heard in the fall," Davis said of prospective audience members. "In choosing the music, some of it started out personal to me as an individual, and as the rehearsal period has progressed, all of it has become personal to me."

According to Davis, the program will feature of a wide variety of music and talent -- individuals who are former school music teachers and other trained musicians who haven't sung for a while.
