Please Note Two Exceptions! Due to school closure, the February 19 and April 2 rehearsals will be held at Clinton Heights Lutheran Church, corner of N. High Street and Clinton Heights Ave. This is one block south of the intersection of High and North Broadway. We will perform at Wesley Glen Retirement Community on Monday April 16 (7 pm) and at Calvary Bible Church on Sunday April 22 (2 pm).
Our Holiday Concert was two days ago but the songs we performed are still playing in my mind! Currently “O Come All Ye Faithful.” I would like to express my gratitude to all our singers — especially our new members, to the C’Ville Songsters, to our talented yet humble accompanist Joyce Beauvais, and to our energetic new Artistic Director Ryan Jenkins. I heard nothing but rave reviews after our performance, and I hope you all enjoyed it as much as I did. The Holiday season is also a time for reflecting about loved ones and friends. I’m sure I wasn’t the only choir member on Sunday thinking of our own Santa, charter member John Hamilton, who was unable to perform this fall due to health problems. We wish him all the best in his recovery. Looking ahead, 2018 is right around the corner and I am already excited about our upcoming Spring Concert! I hope you are too, and look forward to seeing you February 12 when rehearsals begin. Happy holidays! Pete Sanderson (choir president)

All are welcome to join in! No auditions, just a desire to share your musical talents with community members of all ages.

Weekly rehearsals start Monday September 26 in the Whetstone High School choir room from 7:30 to 9:00 pm. All are welcome to join in!

Our annual summer concert will be Sunday August 14, 2016 at 7 pm in the Columbus Park of Roses as part of the Civitan Park of Roses Concert Series. Rehearsals start Monday June 6 at Clinton Heights Lutheran Church, from 7:30 to 9:00 pm. We will rehearse each Monday except for July 4 week when rehearsal will be Tuesday July 5. It’s not too late to join! We’re looking forward to singing the Beach Boys medley on a warm summer evening in the park, close to the shores of the Olentangy! Not exactly Manhattan Beach but we’ll make the most of it!
Thanks everyone for what I consider one of our finest performances
in the 10+ year history of the Clintonville Community Choir!
We welcomed several new members this fall; you challenged
us old-timers and gave us incentive to step up our game!
If you thought this was fun, wait ’til our Spring
concert at Calvary Bible Church! Best wishes for the
holiday season. I look forward to seeing you all in February.
PS. All I want for Christmas is a choir secretary! 🙂
