Schoharie Valley Singers present ‘Hope Is Still Here’

The Schoharie Valley Singers’ spring concert series, “Hope Is Still Here,” will be presented on Friday, June 9, at the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints in Central Bridge, and on Saturday, June 10, at the Reformed Presbyterian Church in Duanesburg.
Both concerts will start at 7:30 p.m. Tickets may be purchased at the door for $10 per person. Students of any age are free.

“Hope is Still Here” features an uplifting selection of classic and contemporary choral music, including selections by J. David Moore, Jacob Narverud, Rene Clausen, Susan LaBarr, and Shawn Kirchner as well as an upbeat musical setting of the hymn text “For the Beauty of the Earth” by Director Benjamin April.

This series also features a piece written by Middleburgh Central School senior Sienna Kelley, entitled “This Short Life.”

This will be the final concert series with Benjamin April at the helm as director and Rae Jean Teeter will be introduced as the next director, taking over in August when rehearsals start again for the 45th season.
