Upcoming Events

Melanie and I are in the Kirksville Community Chorus, a fact of which both of us are quite proud and humbled too.  Melanie has been interested in music since she was in elementary school. She loves to sing.  I am a new kid on the block.  My first choir since the sixth grade (in 1960) was last spring.  And I do love to sing.  "It's never to late to teach an old dog new tricks."

We have 2 concerts coming up.  The big concert is Monday, December 12, 7:30pm, at the First Christian Church.  We will sing our director's (Rich McKinney's) original composition of a "Christmas Cantata".  But Rich has had numerous requests over the years for a sing along.  And we are going to do that too.

The "Holiday Heritage Tunes and Treats" will take place at 7pm, Friday, December 9, First Presbyterian Church.  This "sing along" of beloved Songs of the season also features a sampling of traditional treats with special meanings to friends and family in our community. Door prizes will be given.  The evening is at no charge (in fact, both concerts are).  A free will offering will be given to Hope's Kitchen, a project which feeds families whose means prohibit adequate food. 

Members of the Community Chorus plan to bring special treats to share.  We invite others interested to do the same.
