If you like to sing, and want to do so with a large group of people who have that love in common, come on down to the Shepherd of the Hills Lutheran Church every Monday at 6:30 p.m., and join with the Sisters High Desert Chorale.
This year, the choral will be doing classical Christmas season holiday music, but without the customary "Hallelujah Chorus" from "Messiah." This season's accompanist will be Sisters' own Donna Moyer, well-known piano teacher and musician.
Something new is happening in the High Desert Bell Choir. The choir has moved up to the third octave. They began performing at one octave, which didn't require a large ensemble, then went to the second octave with more instruments and players. Now, going into the third octave will require additional players. The choir has the Susuki tone chimes to make that advancement, but they'll need more
Bell choir director, Lola Knox, will be giving free lessons to anyone who wants to try out for the choir. To take advantage of this opportunity, be at the Lutheran Church at 5:30 p.m. any Monday night the chorale is scheduled to practice.
Irene Liden, director of the chorale, is hoping those Sisters tenors who have been hiding their talents will come out and join in with the chorale. Male or female voices are welcome.
