The Springville Community Chorale is happy to have regrouped, after a brief hiatus, under the enthusiastic leadership of new director Colleen Marcello Brecker, known to many in the Springville area as a professional vocalist and director. Under her able direction, the chorale will present a warm, traditional Christmas concert on Sunday afternoon, Dec. 4 at 4 p.m. at the First United Methodist Church, 472 East Main Street, Springville.

The chorale is composed of singers, director and accompanist from Springville, West Valley, Gowanda and other communities nearby.  It is a group open to all who love to sing and presents concerts that include a wide variety of musical styles in four-part harmony.  The Christmas concert consists of many popular Christmas songs familiar to most people.  There is no charge for attending, but in the spirit of the season there is opportunity to contribute canned or paper goods to the local food bank.
