Campus chamber choir sings with retirement community chorus

The Penn State Berks Chamber Choir Club has started singing with a community chorus from the Heritage of Green Hills, a retirement community located to the south of Reading. The Heritage chorus will be guest artists and sing four songs with the Berks Chamber Choir at a concert on Sunday, April 29, 2012, at 7:00 p.m. in the Perkins Student Center Auditorium. The concert is free and open to the public.

“We have only been doing this for a few weeks, but it has been absolutely outstanding in many ways,” commented William Bowers, Chamber Choir Club co-advisor and Senior Lecturer in Information Sciences and Technology at Penn State Berks. “It is extremely successful and we’re excited about it.”

Every two weeks, the Berks choir has been rehearsing with the Heritage chorus.

Berks choir members benefit by getting involved in the community and extending the college’s presence in the area. The Heritage chorus members benefit by singing musical styles they may not have sung before. Members of both groups benefit by gaining inter-generational experiences and having an opportunity to make music with others.

For more information on the collaboration, contact either of the Berks choir advisers, Bill Bowers at WHB108@psu.edu or Jackie Confalone at JOC10@psu.edu.
