Melodic Fun with the North Kingstown Community Chorus
The North Kingstown Community Chorus participated in the annual Veterans Day Paradethrough Wickford, one of many held across the country in honor of our veterans, past and present. The Chorus regularly includes recognition of veterans at the start of their concerts, and has many veterans among its members.
Thank you, Veterans! The North Kingstown Community Chorus salutes you!
Cause for a Concert Success
The North Kingstown Community Chorus was both pleased and excited to once again take part in the community Cause for a Concert earlier this month.
Initiated by coordinator Elaine Alexander and Director Eric W. Van Dervort, the event benefitted the North Kingstown Holiday Giving Program which provides gifts to North Kingstown families during the holiday season. Both food and monetary donations were also collected for the NK Food Pantry.
Six area church choirs presented special anthems individually, and the Kyrie Road band performed, in addition to the NK Community Chorus. The highlight of the concert was when all(!) the voices joined together at the end to sing two very inspiring pieces, "Inscription of Hope" and "We Rise Again."
The concert audience was considerably larger than last year's inaugural "Cause for a Concert", which also benefitted the NK Food Pantry. Elaine and Eric's goal is to do a concert every year, which will no doubt make it another community annual tradition. Wonder what they have planned for next year...
Special thanks to all who attended! Your enthusiastic support was very welcome and appreciated.
