Summer Sings! - your summer vocal challenge

For the nominal price of 5 bucks, you can flex your vocal chords with some the the best singers in the metropolitan area. The Portland Symphonic Choir is inviting all singers to join in their annual Summer Sings event. For a nominal price $5 per person or $15 per family (for each rehearsal), you can brush up your Handel (Messiah), Haydn (Creation), Brahms (Requiem), and/or Mendelssohn (Elijah). You don't have to bring a score with you, because the PSC will provide a copy.

Here are the particulars:

July 11 Handel's Messiah conductor: Steven Zopfi
First Congregational Church 1126 SW Park

July 18 Haydn's Creation conductor: Sharon Paul
Southminster Presbyterian 12250 SW Denney Rd. Bvtn

July 25 Brahms Requiem (English) conductor: Stephen Coker
St.Andrew Catholic Church 806 NE Alberta St.

Aug. 1 Mendelssohn's Elijah conductor: Bruce Browne
First Congregational Church 1126 SW Park

Since its inception two years ago, Summer Sings! has been a real hit. Apparently, there are a lot of singers who want to get into the action and improve or maintain their skills.
