Westborough – The Hundredth Town Chorus (HTC) will begin its fall session Wednesday, Sept. 6, and is seeking new female singers to join. No auditions are required. There is a need for new voices of all ages and in all parts.
Rehearsals run from 9:30 to 11 a.m. Wednesdays at 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. Women are invited to come to rehearsal and join right in or to observe. No fundraising or ticket selling is asked of its members.
HTC is an organization of women who enjoy singing four-part harmony 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, Shrewsbury, Marlborough, Grafton, Hopkinton, Southborough, Millbury and Uxbridge. The chorus also performs at area events such as Westborough’s Arts in Common and the Westborough 300th Anniversary Celebration. Music includes holiday classics, Broadway favorites, popular music, and folk songs, as well as an occasional classical number.
HTC is supported, in part, by a grant from the Westborough Cultural Council, a local agency supported by the Massachusetts Cultural Council. Congregation B’nai Shalom graciously donates rehearsal space.
