Open Rehearsals

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.  We invite new singers to share this journey with us by attending open rehearsals and learning more about SMFC.

Our Spring 2023 concert is titled Radio Time Machine and will highlight familiar favorites from the airwaves!  The toe tapping program will feature hits from the 1950s to the present including selections from classic artists like The Beatles, Tina Turner, The Beach Boys, Elton John and more.  The hit parade continues with more recent chart toppers from Walk The Moon, Adele, Luke Bryant and Lady Gaga. The concert will be accompanied by live musicians, our handbell group SMFC Bronze and theatrical lighting effects.

New singers are invited to attend our next open rehearsals on Monday, January 23rd and 30th to sing with us and learn more about becoming a member. A brief, informal audition will take place following each of these rehearsals. 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 admin@smfconline.org.
