Christmas Chorus seeking singers

SEQUIM — The Sequim Community Christmas Chorus will present its 35th season of sacred Christmas music in three concerts later this year and organizers are seeking singers of all abilities and ranges now.

No auditions are required as the chorus prepares for concerts set for Dec. 6-8.

Rehearsals will begin at 6:30 p.m. Sept. 10, at Sequim Seventh-day Adventist Church, 30 Sanford Lane.

Registration and book assignment will begin at 6 p.m.

The chorus is not affiliated with any church.

Remaining rehearsals will be held at 6:45 p.m. each Tuesday from Sept. 17 to Dec. 3.

Registration forms are available at Bauer Interior Design, 119 N. Sequim Ave., or may be requested by email to [email protected].

The chorus program will include Christmas favorites such as the “Hallelujah Chorus” and “Peace, Peace,” along with a program of other traditional music such as “Sing Gloria” and “Carol of the Bells.”

Director Louise Pluymen’s musical career includes performances as a soprano soloist with the Seattle Symphony, Dallas Symphony and Florida Philharmonic. A relative newcomer to Sequim, Pluymen lived and worked for many years in the Netherlands where she conducted several award-winning vocal ensembles.

Pianist Kayla (Dyment) Layer, who teaches piano in her Sequim studio and works as a professional accompanist, returns to accompany the chorus.

As in previous years, the chorus will make a donation to the Sequim Community Orchestra’s Kids’ Strings Program, the recipient of a $1,200 donation from the chorus after lasts year’s performances. The program introduces elementary school children to music.
