Robin Williams once said, “Music is God’s little reminder that there’s something else besides us in this universe, a harmonic connection between all living beings, everywhere, even the stars.”
This will certainly ring true in Pagosa Springs this spring. The Pagosa Springs Girls Choir (PSGC) will cross generations and connect with other musicians as it invites ladies in Pagosa to sing with its members in their spring concert.
The women’s chorus, which is being sponsored by the Pagosa Springs Girls Choir, will begin rehearsals next Tuesday, Feb. 23. Rehearsals will run from 7 to 8:30 p.m. at the Community United Methodist Church and will continue each Tuesday at the same time, in the same place, until the performance on May 3.
The chorus is being created to give the young girls of the PSGC the opportunity to work and perform with lifelong musicians in Pagosa.
“We have many talented singers in Pagosa and I’m hoping they will be willing to share their love of music with the girls,” said PSGC Director Linda Parker.
The women will sing several musical selections at the concert, in a variety of genres, and they will sing one selection with the girls at the PSGC’s annual Spring Concert on Tuesday, May 3.
There is no cost to participate in the women’s group.
“All you need is a love of singing,” Parker continued.
Music touches all of us, at many levels and in many ways. We need only to hear a song from the past to know exactly where we were and what we were doing.
If you haven’t registered, there’s no problem. Just come and sing.
Come and experience the “music connection” next Tuesday, Feb. 23, at 7 p.m. at the Community United Methodist Church. If you have any questions, please call Parker at 264-1434 or email her at firstname.lastname@example.org.
