Open Rehearsals

Join us as we celebrate our 25th Anniversary

For 25 years, SMFC has been Making Spirits Bright and we hope you will join with us as we celebrate our Silver Anniversary all year long! Our 2018 Holiday program will include such classic holiday fare as “The Christmas Song (Chestnuts Roasting on an Open Fire)”, “Home for the Holidays”, “I’ll Be Home for Christmas”, and “Sleigh Ride” alongside novelty numbers “Deck the Halls/Jingle Bells” and “I Want a Hippopotamus for Christmas” as well as the cherished Christmas hymns “Silent Night” and “O Holy Night”. We will also premier a new holiday tune “Let’s Enjoy the Holidays” with music and lyrics by Tom Noonan and arranged by Keith Christopher. Making Spirits Bright will be accompanied by live orchestra and the concert will include special effects and other surprises.

Our 25th Anniversary celebration will continue in spring 2019 with Star-Spangled Gospel featuring roof-raising southern gospel and spine-tingling spirituals combined with patriotic favorites including “The Star-Spangled Banner”, “My County Tis of Thee”, “Battle Hymn of the Republic”, “America” and “Salute to the Armed Forces”. Live orchestra and special effects will complete this tour de force tribute to American music and herald a quarter-century of SMFC’s unique brand of choral performances!

The SMFC began with a simple idea; uniting people who share two common interests: a love for music and a desire to perform in a pleasant, relaxing atmosphere. New singers are invited to share this journey with us by attending our next open rehearsals on August 20 and 27, 2018 to sing with us and learn more about becoming a member. A brief, informal audition will take place following rehearsal on the 27th. This holiday season we will be ac­cepting new members in all sections except 2nd soprano, with an especial need for basses.

Weekly rehearsals are held each Monday, 7pm to 9pm, at First Congregational (Stone) Church, 785 South Main Street, Raynham. For more information, please call 508-821-9571, or email admin@smfconline.org.
