Souhegan Valley Chorus winter season rehearsals begin


Thursday, September 13, 2018 10:46AM

The Souhegan Valley Chorus invites interested singers to join them as they prepare for their 2018 winter season. This season’s theme will be “Christmas Favorites.”

Weekly rehearsals are held on Tuesday evenings from 7 to 9 p.m. in the Milford Middle School music room.

The first two rehearsals of the season are “open” for new members to visit and see what they are all about! The Souhegan Valley Chorus is directed by Jennifer K. Erdody of Milford, and accompanied by Kimberly Vars Whitehead of Milford. Jennifer K. Erdody is the choral director at Milford High School, and has recently directed for the Riverbend Youth Company (West Side Story, Beauty and the Beast, Jr.), and music directed for the Ogunquit Playhouse Junior Players (Lion King, Jr.) She is the playbill coordinator for the Palace Theatre, and directs the annual Mont Vernon Community Messiah Sing. She is organist and music director at Milford United Methodist Church, and lives in Milford with her husband and two children. SVC, now in its 39th season, performs a variety of choral music – from classical and jazz, to popular and gospel. Its membership of 60-plus singers are from towns in and around the Souhegan Valley. Two concerts are performed each year, one in December and one in May, along with the popular variety showcase in June. SVC also participates in local town events such as the Amherst 4th of July celebration, Milford Labor Day parade, veteran’s observances, and the Milford Holiday Stroll. Souhegan Valley Chorus is open without audition to singers of high school age or older. Members bring a wide range of abilities and experience, so anyone who loves to sing is encouraged to give the chorus a try at rehearsal on Sept. 18.

As one member put it – “Rehearsals are a good balance of work and fun. It’s such a welcome treat for me at the end of a busy work day.”
