Newport Navy chorus looking for members

The Newport Navy Choristers are currently seeking new members in all voice ranges to sing with them for the 2011 fall season. The choristers are a mixed singing group that is open to all members of the Newport Navy community including active duty, reserve and retired military personnel, their spouses and family members 16 years of age and older, as well as civilian Department of Defense employees.

There are no auditions for the main chorus. While experience is helpful, it is not necessary. The Newport Navy Choristers are wellknown throughout the Newport area, performing concerts throughout the year to benefit local charitable organizations. Since its founding in 1953, they have raised over $350,000 for area groups.

Rehearsals start on Tuesday, Sept. 6, at 7 p.m. on the second deck at Perry Hall, Building 440, Room 100, on the NAVSTA Newport complex and continue every Tuesday thereafter.

For more information, call Pat McGue at 849-1135 or JoAnn Loewenthal at 849-4823. The Newport Navy Choristers can also be found on Facebook.
