Hidden talents a show stopper

On a beautiful August evening the Jamestown Community Center was filled to capacity with patrons to “Discover the Hidden Talents of Jamestown.”

It was very evident that the audience not only enjoyed the many talented guests on the stage, but also viewing a PowerPoint presentation showing many of the residents of this fair island in various activities.

The chorus is grateful for the outpouring of support for the 16th annual benefit talent show. The participation in the traditional raffle and the new addition of a silent auction were well received, and the proceeds will go a long way in funding the chorus’ fall programs.

One such program is our participation in the inaugural presentation of the R. I. Festival Chorus, titled “RISings,” which will be held in Veteran’s Memorial Auditorium in Providence on Nov. 20.

B. J. Whitehouse, our chorus’ director, spearheaded this event and is the chairman of this festival.

The Jamestown Community Chorus is one of seven Rhode Island choruses that will present the program for the evening. Each chorus will sing a few of its own selections, and then sing en masse with over 330 singers filling the auditorium with music. It will be a performance night to remember.

Our acknowledgments would not be complete without stating our appreciation to the staff of the Jamestown Press for their continuing outstanding coverage of all of our chorus events.

On behalf of the board and members of the chorus, we thank the community for their ongoing support in promoting the best in choral music on the island.
