Open Rehearsals

Star-Spangled Gospel

The SMFC began with a simple idea; uniting people who share two common interests:alove for music and a desire to perform in a pleasant, relaxing atmosphere. We invite new singers to share this journey with us by attending open rehearsals and learn more about SMFC.

Our 25th Anniversary Celebration continues in Spring 2019 with a program entitled Star - Spangled Gospel that will be sure to keep your feet tapping and put joy in your heart! Selections will include traditional spirituals such as “Go Down, Moses”, “Little David Play on Your Harp” and “Peace at the River” as well as modern Southern Style Gospel tunes “Stepping on the Clouds” and “The Old Gospel Ship”. We will round out the concert with a second half of All American Patriotic musical favorites like “Battle Hymn of the Republic”, “My Country ‘Tis of Thee” and the beloved “Salute to the Armed Forces”. No SMFC concert would be without some glorious music from our full orchestra and of course, special effects and other surprises!

New singers are invited to attend our next open rehearsals on Monday, January 7 and 14, 2019 to sing with us and learn more about becoming a member. We are accepting members in first soprano, alto, tenor and bass sections only. A brief, informal audition will take place following rehearsal on the 14th. Weekly rehearsals are held each Monday, 7 PM to 9 PM, at First Congregational (Stone) Church, 785 South Main Street, Raynham. For more information, please email or visit
