| August 14, 2013

COSHOCTON – The Coshocton Community Choir will have auditions for its 43rd season on Thursday, Aug. 29, at The Presbyterian Church, 142 N. Fourth St.

Vacancies in the choir’s membership are open by audition to interested singers, high school age and older. A prepared song is not required.

The choir is directed by its founder, Charles R. Snyder, and has become known for its renditions of sacred a cappella literature. More than 700 singers have sung with the choir since its beginning in the fall of 1971.

The choir will present concerts on Sunday, Dec. 8 and Sunday, April 27, 2014, as well as joining the All-Ohio Youth Choir for a Winter Pops Concert on Sunday, Feb. 16, 2014. The choir has also sung in Mt. Gilead, Somerset, Grove City, Wooster, Newcomerstown, and Dresden and has performed for two conferences for the Ohio Choral Directors Association. Last summer marked the choir’s fifth appearance on the prestigious concert series at Lakeside Chautauqua on Lake Erie.

Rehearsals for this season will begin at 6:30 p.m. Sunday, Sept. 8, at The Presbyterian Church in Coshocton. Auditions for the Coshocton Youth Chorale and the Coshocton Children’s Choir will take place in early October following the Coshocton County Fair.

I also earned several awards while working for daily papers, including being honored by Coshocton County’s veterans for the stories I wrote about them. I am honored and ready to once again shine a positive light on Coshocton County. I also am the proud mother of a little girl named Sophia!
