The Springville Community Chorale is happy to rehearse and sing two concerts a year under the enthusiastic leadership of Director Colleen Marcello Brecker, known to many in the Springville area as a professional vocalist and director. Under her direction, the chorale will present a warm, traditional Christmas concert on Sunday afternoon, Dec. 3 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, East Concord, 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, some of which are accompanied by local instrumentalists.  There is no charge for attending, but in the spirit of the season, there is an opportunity to contribute canned or paper goods to the local food bank.
