SIC Community Choir Seeking New Members

August 11, 2014

Southeastern Illinois College Community Choir is accepting new members.

Director Tim Green is calling for individuals with a desire to create terrific group vocal performances to join the choir. Open to singers of high school age and up, the community choir performs one concert each fall and spring semester at SIC’s Visual and Performing Arts Center (VPAC), as well as a performance at May commencement exercises and occasional special performances as well.

The Choir is comprised of volunteers from all over southern Illinois. Rehearsals begin Tuesday, Aug. 19, and continue every Tuesday from 6 to 8 p.m. in room F110 at SIC in Harrisburg. The choir will start by working on basic vocals.

Tim Green of Golconda has been directing the SIC Community Choir for six years and has been directing similar choirs for more than 25 years.

“We are looking for people who enjoy singing, from beginner to advanced, and love learning about music,” said Green. “The choir is open to all SIC students and faculty or anyone high school age and up, and male voices are especially needed.”

There is no cost to participate, and members can receive one college credit per semester, up to four credits, if desired.

Green will also be conducting during “Christmas Around the World,” to be held Dec. 14, 2014 at 2 p.m. at SIC

Anyone interested in joining the choir may simply come to a rehearsal, or for more information, contact Tim Green at 618-841-2596 or
