“WE: Celebrating Connections” coming November 6th

Our opening concert for 2022-2023 is just around the corner. On Sunday afternoon, November 6th, 3:00 pm at the historic Covenant Presbyterian Church of Scranton, our adult chorus will share music and texts celebrating the many connections that make our lives full and rewarding: Love, Family and Friends, of course, but also the Spiritual, Nature, High Ideas, Art, and Homeland. General Admission for adults is $ 15.00 with a $3.00 discount for seniors and WVIA members. Ages 18 and under admitted free of charge.

Our Complete 2022-2023 Season

With gratitude to all our singers and supporters who have helped us “keep the lights on” for the past two difficult years, we are pleased to announce our 2022-2023 concert season. Rehearsals will continue to be held on Monday evenings, 6:30-9:00 pm, at Langcliffe Presbyterian Church in Avoca, which is easily accessed from I-81 coming from both Scranton and Wilkes-Barre. Fall meetings will begin on August 29th and Spring meetings will begin on January 9th. For the complete schedule, please click on the link below.

As always, no audition is required to join the chorus, nor do you need to read music. We supply both professional section leaders and song-learning aids to assist your mastery of the music.  Members pay a participation fee of $75 per semester (a spouse, partner or other family member can also join for only $37.50) and purchase and retain their own copies of the music at a cost of around $20 per semester. Singers also need to purchase the performance attire: tuxedo/black suit or the choir’s “official black top” that can be worn with either long black skirt or black dress slacks.
