Norwood Community Chorus performing 1st concert July 12

Several weeks ago, Andrew Clark, NHS graduate, Miami University student, singer, and reporter for the Norwood Times, sent us information about the upcoming, first-ever concert by the newly-formed Norwood Community Chorus. The latest edition of the Norwood Times featured an interesting article Andrew, who joined the chorus, wrote about its origins and the tremendous success it has had recruiting members. For those who might have missed it, here’s a brief summary:

The Norwood Community Chorus started this past January as an outreach ministry for the Zion United Church of Christ after various community members expressed a desire to form a local choral group. It is under the direction of Judy White, who taught many Norwood City Schools choral groups and took them to competitions, including the renowned NHS Silhouettes, and was active in musicals at every level in the school system. Many of the 46 members attended NCS when she was teaching and are enjoying their reunion both with her and former classmates. Among them are our very own Rick Hursh and his wife Sheri, Becky and Rick Geselbracht, Tim Jones, and Brian Frasure.

If any of our readers would like to make a donation to the group to help pay for music and other needs the choir has, contact Judy White at 576-0197.
