Do you have children that love to sing? Are you looking for ways you or your family can be more involved with your community? Did you know there was a Hilltown community chorus group, the Hilltown Choral Society, and they are welcoming new singers of all ages?

The Hilltown Choral Society welcomes new singers and will hold rehearsals for their Holiday Concerts and Winter Concert on Monday evenings beginning September 14th, 2009 from 7:30 to 9:00pm in the Worthington Historical Society Building (intersection of Routes 143 and 112) in the center of Worthington, MA.

The  Holiday Concerts are to be held on Saturday December 5th and Sunday, December 6th, 2009, and a Winter Concert will also be held on Sunday January 3rd, 2010.

With nearly 10 million children and 32 million adults singing in choruses, choral singing is the most popular form of participation in the performing arts*.

“The prototype of a choral singer is how Americans aspire to see themselves today: as active, involved citizens with a broad range of creative interests and concerns for their communities,” says Ann Meier Baker, the President and CEO of Chorus America.

According to a *new study conducted by Chorus America, choral singers exhibit increased social skills, civic involvement, volunteerism, philanthropy, and support of other art forms, when compared with non-singers.  Read their findings here: How Children, Adults and Communities Benefit from Choruses: The Chorus Impact Study.
