Marshall Community Chorus to rejoice again

Tuesday, October 12, 2021

The Marshall Community Chorus will present the first concert of its 33rd concert season on Sunday, Oct. 24, at 2 p.m. at Covenant Presbyterian Church, 710 E. Yerby St., in Marshall. The concert is free and open to the public.

The building is handicapped accessible with no steps. Concertgoers are asked to wear masks, regardless of their vaccination status, in keeping with the COVID policy of the church, the Centers for Disease Control, and in consideration of all attendees.

This will be the first concert in 18 months for the choir, their 32nd concert season being a victim of the COVID pandemic. Singers and concertgoers alike have missed music and have longed for this day when they can start to return to normal.

The theme of the concert, “Reawakening Voices,” will demonstrate through song the emotions many of us felt tackling the changes and upheavals we endured as we journeyed from March 2020 to the present when we could begin to sing with, and for, each other.

The Marshall Community Chorus is under the direction of Mr. Ron Sayer, who starts his 14th year as director of the chorus. The choir is accompanied by Dr. Derek Wittman at the piano and guest instrumentalist Gwen Kappelman.

During the concert, the choir will take time to recognize the contributions of Julie Lewis, who recently retired as accompanist after serving in that position for almost 32 years.

A reception will follow the concert with an opportunity for guests to mingle with choir members, their director, and to also wish Julie Lewis well on her retirement.
