Lead On!: Coshocton Community Choir celebrates 45 years

| April 25, 2016

COSHOCTON – The Coshocton Community Choir has been a blessing to the community for the past 45 years. During that time, 841 people have performed in the Community Choir and 740 children have sung in the Children’s Choir, which is celebrating its 29th year. During the concert, the choir performed a set commemorating its anniversary and included the song, “Lead On”. “We sing this in the hopes that we will continue to lead on this musical group for the county,” said Director Charles Snyder. The group also performed, “Nearer My God to Thee”. “We sing this to honor all of the members of the choir who are now singing on the other side,” said Snyder. Thousands of people have been entertained by the choir throughout the years. “We’ve been coming to this forever, for a lot of years,” said Larry Watson of Coshocton. “We really enjoy the music.” The choir ended with the Hallelujah chorus to honor the times when the choir used to perform Handel’s “Messiah”.
