As schools start up for children, so do rehearsals for the Conway Men’s Chorus 16th Christmas Holiday Concert. All men interested in singing and fellowshipping with others are invited to be part of this exciting group as a returning member or new member. Rehearsals begin for the Fall season on Monday, Sept. 9, at Woodland Heights Baptist Church on Prince Street at Hogan Lane. Rehearsals are designed for busy men, as they meet in the choir room for about an hour beginning at 6 p.m. each Monday.
The Conway Men’s Chorus has been performing since 1998, and Reynolds Performance Hall on the campus of the University of Central Arkansas has become the favorite venue. Sam Husky, director of Choral Music with the Conway Public Schools, continues as the Music Director of the Men’s Chorus, and he will be introducing new and proven concert pieces as Paul Bradley is piano accompanist. Assisting Mr. Huskey as Assistant Music Directors are Dustin Summey and Dr. Greg Murry.
Some of the pieces the men will be working on for their upcoming concert include “A Gentlemen’s Christmas,” “In the Bleak Midwinter,” “Jingle Bells,” “Sussex Carol,” “Winter Wonderland,” “Ave Maria,” “A Holly Jolly Celebration,” and “Noel, Sing We Noel!,” In addition to these and other songs of the season will be an audience sing-along and special guest performers.
Men of all levels of musical ability are invited to become a part of the chorus as they prepare to present their 16th Christmas Holiday Concert at no cost to the public as their gift of music to the community. The concert will be held at 7 p.m. on Tuesday, Dec. 10, at Reynolds Performance Hall on the campus of the University of Central Arkansas. According to Chorus President Mike McCullars, “The Men’s Chorus has become an important part of the lives of many men as they celebrate music while also enjoy being together. But there’s always room for one more.”
