Community choir concludes season with another free concert


The New Hope-Solebury & Lambertville Community Choir concludes the singing season with a free mini-concert at 7 p.m. Tuesday, June 4.

The mini-concert will be held at Trinity Episcopal Church, 6587 Upper York Road in Solebury, and is the latest NHSLCC-hosted event, part of the organization’s ongoing expansion into the community.

In a somewhat different approach to learning and presenting music, the choir rehearses and performs several short music blocs throughout the choral season. Each bloc includes several weeks of rehearsal on a small number of pieces, and input and instruction from a guest clinician, culminating in a Tuesday evening mini-concert.

The all-volunteer/non-audition choir’s June 4 performance focuses on singer-songwriters Carole King, Townes van Zandt, Lennon and McCartney, and J.S. Bach. Piano accompanist Roburt Gajdos will also be featured, along with a few guitar players, and perhaps a surprise or two.

“Music is medicine and music is for everyone,” says NHSLCC founder/artistic director Rick Rosen. “Our basic idea is to make music and musical expression accessible not just to those who enjoy the ‘upper levels’ of listening and performance, but to one and all. Our goal is to learn and to make good music, and we’d like to invite the community in to join with us in sharing in the results.”
