Join the choristers

The Newport Navy Choristers, under the direction of JoAnn Loewenthal, are currently seeking new members in all voice ranges for the 2006-2007 musical season.

The choristers perform concerts throughout the year to benefit local charitable organizations. Since its founding in 1953, the choristers have raised over $350,000 for worthwhile area groups.

Membership is open to all active duty, reserve, and retired military, civilian employees of local military commands, and family members over 16 years of age. There are no auditions for

the main chorus, and the ability to read music is not a requirement. While helpful, experience is not necessary. The Newport Navy Choristers perform five times a year in Fall River, Mass., and in the Newport area.

The choristers meet Tuesday evenings at 6:15 p.m. in the Quinn Lecture Room at the Naval War College. The first rehearsal for the fall season will be Tuesday evening, Sept. 5.

For further information, call Steve Larson, at 847-4256, or JoAnn Loewenthal, 849-4823.
