This year’s Springfest of Music, presented by the Warren County Community Singers will be a weekend earlier than usual, Saturday, April 29 and Sunday, April 30.
The Sunday venue also changes this year, to the Washington United Methodist Church, 116 East Washington Avenue, just around the corner from the usual venue on Church Street. The concert will be at 3 p.m. Parking is available across Washington Avenue from the church.
The Saturday concert will be in the usual location, Grace Lutheran Church, 300 Roseberry Street, Phillipsburg. It will be held at 7:30 p.m.
The singers are a non-audition group of adults, high school age and above, from all around the county and its environs, directed by Hunter Chadeayne.
Associate Director/Accompanist is Ann Hoyt. The concert also features the Children’s Chorus of Warren County under the direction of Mariah Thomspon. Laura Rader is accompanist. The children are age 7 through middle school age with unchanged voices.
This year’s Springfest features some unusual selections, such as Jabberwocky, based on the Lewis Carroll poem.
Also featured at Springfest will be a performance by one of the Warren County music scholarship winners.
Community Singers perform two primary concerts a year, in the spring and the first weekend in December, and also perform at other venues throughout the year. New members will be accepted for the fall semester in early September.
The concerts are free and a good will offering is collected.
The Children’s Chorus is sponsored by the Singers. Funding comes, in part, from the Warren County Cultural and Heritage Commission.
