They’re singing songs and you can sing along during an upcoming “Fall into Winter” concert by the New Hope-Solebury & Lambertville Community Choir. The group will perform choral and contemporary pieces at 4 p.m. Sunday, Dec. 1 at Trinity Episcopal Church in Solebury.
In the program: works for the entire choir by Handel, Nyberg, Lennon & McCartney and more, as well as songs led by individual members. The show also features a holiday carol sing-along.
The group rehearses Tuesday nights at the Logan Inn. All are welcome (no auditions required). During their inaugural season last year, the choir performed at the New Hope Christmas tree lighting ceremony, the First Federal Bank, the Logan Inn, Trinity Episcopal Church, and the New Hope Community Meeting Room.
The choir is directed by Episcopal minister of music, male a cappella group Cordus Mundi founder, and New Hope resident Rick Rosen. He believes he’s fulfilling a mission.
“Music is medicine. Music appeals to our higher nature. Music is for everyone, not just for those who perform at the top levels,” he said. “A true community choir, of the people, is living proof that these ideals resonate.”
The New Hope-Solebury & Lambertville Community Choir performs at 4 p.m. Sunday, Dec. 1 at Trinity Episcopal Church; 6587 Upper York Road, Solebury. Tickets: $10 (under 12, free), purchased at the door or in advance by calling 650-219-2748, e-mailing firstname.lastname@example.org, or visiting the group’s Facebook page.
