CHESTERTOWN - Rehearsals are about to begin for this year's annual Christmas Cantata presentations here, and vocalists are being sought to join the choir.
This year's cantata, entitled Great and Mighty Wonder by Tom Fettke will be presented by an ecumenical choir at 7 p.m. Saturday, Dec. 5 in Saint Sacrement Episcopal Church in Bolton Landing and at 3 p.m. Sunday, Dec. 6 in the United Methodist Church in Chestertown.
All who love to sing are invited to join the ecumenical choir, organizers said. Rehearsals begin 7 p.m. Oct. 7 in the Chestertown United Methodist Church.
This annual event is once again being directed by Lenore Simpson and accompanied by Robert Flachbarth. Lenore is a retired music teacher from Warrensburg and Flachbarth is presently the organist at the Pottersville and Chestertown United Methodist Churches.
"The cantata is a joyous way to welcome in the holiday season," a choir representative said. " Come join your neighbors and friends - All are welcome!"
