December Highlights – the West Branch Chorus & Santas
The Thomas T. Taber Museum of the Lycoming County Historical Society presented a special concert performed by the West Branch Chorus on Sunday, December 11 in the Community Room. The museum was open at 1:00 for a preview of the holiday exhibit, Santa Claus is Coming to Town.
The West Branch Chorus has been together since 1975 singing in the Central Pennsylvania region. The chorus performs at sporting event national anthems, summer park events, and the Chorus’ bi-annual formal concerts. They classify themselves as a Barbershop mens chorus and sing a multitude of songs in the Barbershop style. It is likely that several quartets will be performing as well as the chorus, with a selection of religious and secular music on their program. The chorus rehearses on Tuesday nights from 7:30-9:30 at the United Church of Christ in McEwensville. Visitors are welcome to come and try out!
This special event concluded the very successful 2016 lecture series which featured the ‘Musical Heritage of Central Pennsylvania.’ It was underwritten by the Woodcock Foundation for the Appreciation of the Arts and Hudock Capital.
