In other news, The Chautauqua Shores Chorus was busy last month, as they kept their voices in tune with singing engagements at several establishments. The chorus sang in Bemus Point at Our Lady of Lourdes Catholic Church and at the Hare N' Hounds restaurant. In Jamestown, they sang at the Robert H. Jackson Center, Heritage Green, Aspire, Washington Middle School and Zion Covenant. In Warren, they sang at the Struthers Library Theater for the second annual CASA benefit Christmas concert. In addition to their sing-outs, the members of the chorus and their spouses had dinner at the Moose Lodge in Warren for their annual Christmas party.
The Chautauqua Shores practice every Monday night at 7 at the First Baptist Church on East Fifth Street in Jamestown. Any woman from any age group who loves to sing is invited to come to a practice.
The chorus sings a cappella four-part harmony, barbershop-style music which includes gospel, patriotic, seasonal numbers, up tunes and more. There is no requirement to read music as learning media is available.
