Crestwood Chorus News

The Crestwood Chorus and their director, Jack Milkovitz, want to thank the SRO attendance we had at our December program.  We all were exhilarated by the enthusiasm of our audience, both throughout the performance and during the reception as compliments were joyfully received with our cookies and coffee.  What a wonderful way it was to usher in the merriment of the holiday season!

We are now looking forward to start up of rehearsals in preparation for the Spring program, Sunday, May 5, 2013.  Our director has chosen a repertoire of music sure to please our audience.  The music committee listened with excitement as Jack presented sound bites from music chosen for the upcoming program.  We now enthusiastically await the first downbeat as we anticipate a wonderful season, and we look forward to sharing information about upcoming concert selections in future Forked River Gazette issues.  

Wouldn’t you just love to sing with us?!  Anyone with an interest in singing is cordially invited to see if this is an activity you would like to pursue.  We rehearse on Tuesday evenings from 6:30-8:30 at Community Reformed Church, 30 Lacey Road, Whiting.  If you love to sing and perform with an SATB chorus, come on down!  You will be warmly welcomed.  For directions and further information, please call acting president Nancy Matosko, 732-350-9322.
