BSCTC InHarmony Singing Group Invites New Members

All eastern Kentucky women ages 13 plus are invited to join The Big Sandy Community and Technical College (BSCTC) Community-based female singing group InHarmony as they begin a new semester of rehearsals and performances. InHarmony is a free program that provides members of the eastern Kentucky community a chance to enjoy and share their vocal talents.

Members can join, at either of the two beginning rehearsals: Mon., Aug. 31 and Mon., Sept. 14 (skipping Mon. Sept. 7 in honor of Labor Day), from 6:30 8:00 PM in Gearheart Auditorium, Pike Building, Prestonsburg Campus. Choir Director Laura Ford Hall welcomes everyone to join. We welcome any young lady or woman who loves to sing to join us. We have a wonderful womens chorus, and I look forward to a new semester of good music and fun.

InHarmony will be singing a variety of music this semester including pop, oldies, and Christmas pieces. Songs include a Diana Ross amp; The Supremes Medley, True Colors made popular by Cindy Lauper and Phil Collins, The Blessing, a beautiful piece by Celtic Woman, and some Christmas songs including Beautiful December, a neat arrangement of Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer, and much more!

Any lady can join InHarmony, Hall said. We would love to have beginners and experienced singers, as well as everyone in-between. The choir serves the BSCTC campuses of Pikeville, Prestonsburg, and Paintsville, so all eastern Kentucky citizens are welcome. However, those wishing to join should be 13 or older. The choir is accompanied by Alicia Hughes, pianist for the Kentucky Opry Orchestra, with Tim Cooley, Technical Director.

There is no audition for InHarmony, but the ladies in the group will have the opportunity to audition for an elite, singing ensemble comprised of InHarmony members called Big Sandy Serenade. To be a part of Serenade, ladies must also be a part of InHarmony. Serenade performs 15-20 shows per year.

InHarmony will meet every Monday at the same time until the final performances during December. Music will be provided for each member and there is no fee to join. We express many thanks to our BSCTC President Dr. George Edwards, and Provost Dr. Nancy Johnson, and also to our music program sponsor Jennifer Reynolds State Farm Insurance, Hall added. Without the help these individuals, free programs like InHarmony and Serenade would not be possible.

InHarmony, the community-based female singing group from Big Sandy Community and Technical College invites new members to join on Mon., Aug. 31 or Mon., Sept. 14, and any lady in the community is invited to join. Pictured are the 2009 members before performing their Spring Concert in May.
