WESTBOROUGH – The Hanover Theatre and Conservatory for the Performing Arts invited the Westborough Community Chorus to perform on Dec. 22 ahead of the evening’s performance of “A Christmas Carol.”

“This coming year we are recruiting new singers for the chorus. Our rehearsals will start in January in preparation for our May spring show themed ‘British pop music new and old,’” Chorus Director Andrew Milne said. 

He continued, “Our members are true performers and love to showcase their talents to the public. Performing at the Hanover Theater was truly a privilege and the highlight of our year. We thank the Hanover Theatre management team for working with us to make this happen.”

The WCC performed many of the same songs from its “A Wish for Peace” performance in early December at the Gibbons Middle School in Westborough. 

The WCC membership is approximately 55 active chorus members strong. 

Moving forward, the chorus has begun preparations for a trip to perform at Carnegie Hall in June 2024, as the final roster will be due in October 2023.

The Westborough Community Chorus is a nonprofit 501 c (3) organization supported by donations made from the holiday and spring shows as well as the private community. These funds support the scholarships awards given to students during the spring concert as they further their education in the arts.

The chorus will have rehearsals for the spring performance on Mondays from 7:30 to 9 p.m. starting Jan. 16 at the Westborough Senior Center.
