WESTBOROUGH – The Hundredth Town Chorus, which is an all-volunteer treble chorus, is seeking new members.

Any interested singers are invited to come to the opening day on Sept. 14, as well as the two open rehearsals on Sept. 21 and 28.

The chorus is particularly seeking first sopranos, though all parts are welcome.

The chorus, which was founded in 1949 by the Westborough Women’s Club, is an organization of women who enjoy singing four-part harmony. Their mission is to share the joy of music by singing and entertaining at area nursing homes, assisted living facilities and senior centers. They also perform at local events, like the Arts in Common.

The chorus is made up of members from throughout Worcester County. 

On the opening day, interested singers can meet with board members and committee chairs, get to know current group members, try out new songs with the chorus under the direction of the assistant conductor and receive chorus information and registration materials. Those who wish to register will receive a music packet to take home. 

Director Mary Havlicek Cornacchia will lead the full rehearsals and can meet with singers for conversation and section placement.

Rehearsals run from 9:30 to 11 a.m. on Wednesdays at Congregation B’nai Shalom, 117 E. Main St., Westborough.

The chorus is supported, in part, by a grant from the Westborough Cultural Council.
