The Rhode Island Festival Chorus, a statewide consortium of community choruses, will hold a fund-raising picnic in Jamestown on Saturday, Sept. 30.

The Jamestown Community Chorus is acting as host to the event at the Rembijas pavilion at Fort Getty. All singers, families, and interested patrons are invited to attend.

The picnic will begin at 1 p.m., and the admission price includes a picnic meal, a silent auction, and a bake sale. There will be singing and fun and games for the whole family.

The Jamestown singers are pleased to welcome singers from the West Bay Chorale, All In a Chord, and the CumberlandLincoln Community Chorus.

RISings II, a concert made up of these groups, will take place on Sunday, April 29, 2007 at the East Providence High School.
