Taking on a repertoire edited by Maestro John Rutter, Columbia County’s own masterworks choir, the River City Singers, is offering a series of concerts this spring.
“This is an exciting season for our choir,” Margaret Trenchard-Smith said.
Dubbed “Cathedral Reflections,” the first of the singers’ performances is scheduled for 7 p.m. on Sunday, April 28 at the First Methodist Church, located at 560 Columbia Blvd. in St. Helens.
At 2 p.m. on Saturday, May 4, the singers will perform at the Birkenfeld Theater located within the Clatskanie Cultural Center at 75 S. Nehalem in Clatskanie.
Suggested donations for each are $10.
Later in May, a group of the choristers will go on to New York City to join a massed choir in singing these works at Carnegie Hall under the direction of Maestro Rutter. The choir thanks the Columbia County Cultural Coalition for its generous grant, which made their local concerts possible.
The Columbia Chorale – River City Singers is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization.
