Concert will be held at Longview's First United Methodist Church

The East Texas Community Chorus will present “The Sublime and the Ridiculous” next month in Longview that will consist of a 50-voice chorus of professional and amateur musicians.


The concert is set for 7:30 p.m. Tuesday, Nov. 5, at Longview’s First United Methodist Church, located at 400 N. Fredonia St.


Admission to the concert is free and the public is invited.


“The concert will consist of choral works of great beauty and profundity as well as those that are fun and wacky,” said Dr. Jim Taylor, KC’s director of choral activities.


Composers represented in the concert will include Haydn, Martini, Clausen, Rutter, F. Melius Christiansen, Taylor, Gilbert & Sullivan, P.D.Q. and Bach.


The group rehearses at the First United Methodist Church in Longview every Monday night and joins the KC Chorale to form a mass choir for occasional concerts.


Taylor said the group is always looking for new members. 


“Singers do not need to audition, but must be able to hold a choral part well amid harmony in an a cappella setting,” Taylor said.
