The Richardson Community Chorale is preparing for its annual Spring concert taking place Thursday, April 25th at the First United Methodist Church in Richardson.

The concert is called ‘Taste of Italy,’ and will feature several songs by Italian composers. Most of them will be performed in Italian, but there are other songs that will be in English as well.  

The chorale performs two big concerts a year, one in the Fall and the other in the Spring.  The group also perform at senior centers, nursing homes and community events throughout the year.

“We have a motto with the chorale and that is sing for joy, and so we want people to get joy out of hearing us sing, and maybe even discover they would like to sing themselves,” said Ian Gill, music director.

The Richardson Community Chorale has been performing in north Texas for the last three years and began with 24 singers. It now has 67 active members who all share the same passion for singing and performing.

The chorale is one of 35 groups that receives grant funding through the City’s Cultural Arts Commission and approved by the City Council.

The ‘Taste of Italy,’ concert performed by the Richardson Community Chorale is Thursday, April 25th at 7 p.m. and will take place at the First United Methodist Church at 503 N. Central Expressway in Richardson.
