Web Lead

All singers are invited to join in the 60-70 voice Bonners Ferry Community Choir which starts rehearsals on Tues. Oct. 16 at 6:30 pm.

The choir rehearses at Trinity Lutheran Church on Cody St. in Bonners Ferry. This non-auditioned community choir is free to any who would like to participate high school age through senior citizens. Middle students are welcome if their parent sings in the choir as well. The choir will rehearse each Tuesday until it’s umpteenth annual Christmas Concert series which will be held Fri. Dec. 21 at 7:30 pm and Sun. Dec. 23 at 3 pm. The choir has presented Christmas concerts since 1978 and perhaps even earlier, no one seems to remember the first one! This year the theme for the concerts is “Christmas Across America”. Conductor is Vicki Blake Thompson who has conducted the choir since 1997. Accompanist is Barbara Nelson. Each year CD’s are made of each part so even those who don’t read music well can join in the singing. Often times college students who come home for Christmas will learn the music on their own and join the choir for the final week of rehearsals. It is truly a community celebration and a long standing tradition for Bonners Ferry. For more info about the choir call Vicki at 304-0866
