Region – The Hundredth Town Chorus (HTC) will begin its fall session Wednesday, Sept. 9. The HTC is a dynamic organization of enthusiastic women who enjoy singing in four-parts in a relaxing and fun environment. The chorus was founded in 1949 by the Westborough Women’s Club, with a mission to share the joy of music by singing and entertaining at area nursing homes, assisted living facilities and senior centers.

 

Today’s chorus is made up of members from all over Worcester County, including Westborough, Northborough, Southborough, Grafton, Millbury, and Uxbridge. HTC also performs at area events, including Westborough’s Arts in Common and Northborough’s Christmas Tree Lighting. Music includes holiday classics, Broadway favorites, popular music, and folk songs.

 

HTC is searching for new female singers to join the chorus. No auditions are required. There is a need for new voices of all ages and in all parts. Rehearsals run Wednesdays from 9:30 to 11 a.m., at the Congregation B’nai Shalom, 117 E. Main St., Westborough. The chorus is not affiliated with the synagogue. There are no night or weekend rehearsals or obligations. All performances are also held on Wednesday mornings. Come to rehearsal and join right in or come to observe what we are all about.
