On Sunday, October 27, at 1:00 p.m. rehearsals for the Community Christmas Cantata will begin.  The choir will meet at the United Church on 53 Elizabeth Street in Ellicottville,  for seven Sundays leading up to the concert which will be at 3:00 on Dec. 15th, 2013.

All 90- minute sessions will begin at 1:00 except Dec. 8th, which will be at 7:00 p.m.

It is the hope of the director, Annette Ieda, that each choir member will be able to attend at least 6 of the 7 rehearsals. Practice CDs and scores will be available for singers to take home.

This year’s Cantata is a newly written work by Lloyd Larson, “Behold the Star.”  Mrs. Ieda stated that “Although much of the music is newly composed, there are still several well known and beautifully orchestrated Christmas Songs included.  There are also some opportunities during the Cantata for the audience to join in!”  (A very large choir!) Mrs. Ieda is thrilled that the St. Paul’s Dulcimers will be participating again.

The Dec. 15th performance location will either be at the United Church or St. Paul’s Lutheran Church, depending on how many people are in the choir.

So, if you love to sing, please come and join us.  Spread the word, spread the joy! It’s time to prepare for Christmas! Sing! Sing! Sing!

Please call Annette Ieda 716-699-6338 for further information.  Other than that, just SHOW UP!  We need YOU!
