|River Bend Chorus had our first holiday performance since 2019! What fun to be back in front of a live audience, celebrating the Season in Song! As part of the History Museum’s Christmas at Copshaholm, we gave two performances of our Holiday repertoire of Christmas carols and holiday songs. We were joined by the quartet ‘Serenade’ with special selections of Home for the Holidays and Christmas Time is Here.
With a private performance and the benefits show yet to come, the joy of singing has made this years ‘count-down to Christmas’ very merry and bright!
We hope you are able to join us on the 19th to celebrate A Cappella Christmas with us!
|We are bringing back a revised version of an old tradition.|

Congratulations to member Marcia Barrett on being our River Bend Sweet Adeline of the Year!
We loved singing at ArtBeat this year. There was a great crowd and the rain held off! We also had a booth where we were able to meet a lot of music lovers and we sold a lot of popcorn from Shirley's Popcorn. We can't wait for ArtBeat 2023!
