RCS is a non-audition, multi-generation community chorus with over 60 members from the Reading, Wakefield, Lynnfield, Stoneham, Wilmington, Woburn, Burlington, and Melrose areas. We have members with years of experience and members who haven’t sung a note in years. All interested singers who can match pitch and carry a tune are welcome to join us. All voice parts are needed. We perform in early December and again in early May.
In past years, RCS participated in the Reading Tree-lighting celebration, Reading Street Faire and the YMCA holiday party. We also sing the National Anthem at a Lowell Spinners and NE Revolution game each summer. This year , we are also planning a New York City concert weekend in late June where we may be singing at the Statue of Liberty, Lincoln Center and/or St. John the Divine. If you join this fall, you are eligible to join us! Registration for the trip ends 9/15/12.
