“If you love to sign and enjoy performing, please join us for our fall season,” said Chuck Brown, music director. “We enjoy making music together and the fellowship that comes from performing choral music for all audiences.”

The Community Chorus will perform at the nonprofit community arts school’s twelfth annual Holiday Concert on Sunday, Dec. 6, 2:30 p.m. at the Congregational Church of Grafton. The free concert is part of Grafton Celebrates the Holidays event sponsored by the town of Grafton’s Recreation Commission.
