Here is a link to Larry Griffin’s Clintonville Community Choir page on YouTube. It includes videos of many of our Fall 2022 pieces. You can practice between rehearsals by singing along with them. This page will open in a new browser tab.
Rehearsals for our Holiday 2022 season begin on Monday September 19. Rehearsals this fall will start at 7 pm and end at 8:30. Both are 30 minutes earlier than in previous years. No rehearsal on October 31. We will rehearse at Clinton Heights Lutheran Church, as we have for the past several seasons. Dues will be $30 for an individual ($15 for students), $45 for a family. No music deposit. Our new Artistic Director Larry Griffin has developed an exciting repertoire of music for our December 4 concert at Calvary Bible Church. Hope you can join us this season!
Choir members: here are links to practice tracks for our Summer 2022 repetoire.
Members, you should have received an email from Sarah Rainwater with details regarding the cancellation, the process moving forward, options for dues and return of spring concert music. This information is also posted to the Choir’s Facebook group. If you do not have access to either of these, you may email the webmaster to request a copy.
All current choir members should have received an email explaining the Board’s decision to cancel our Spring 2020 concerts. It was also posted to the choir members’ Facebook group. Spring dues will be carried forward to summer. Both documents include a link to a form where you can request a refund instead. Be safe.
There will be no choir rehearsal on Monday February 17, 2020 due to the President’s Day holiday. Rehearsals will resume February 24.

Weekly rehearsals for our Spring 2018 performance begin Monday February 12. Rehearsals are 7:30-9:00 pm in the Whetstone High School choir room (enter building through the south or southeast doors). 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)
