The Holiday Island Singers are pleased to welcome a new music director, Carol Morrison. Carol has an extensive musical background, directing church choirs in the Northeast United States for 30 years. In addition, she has experience in directing musical dramas, has written narration for musical productions, and serves as a private vocal instructor. As a performer, she has a classically trained voice and has performed in numerous choirs and groups since childhood.

She is passionate about shaping and mentoring individuals and is excited about leading a community group of singers. According to Singers' president Jackie Phillips, "Carol is full of energy and enthusiasm, and will use her creative skills to bring an exciting music program to our community."

Also returning to the Singers this year is accompanist Diana Brown, about which the group is very excited. Phillips says, "Diana and Carol will be a dynamic duo!"

The Singers will begin rehearsals for their holiday season on Wednesday, Aug. 14, with a meeting at 1 p.m., followed by rehearsal from 1:30 to 3:30 p.m. in the Holiday Island Clubhouse ballroom. Concerts are scheduled for Dec. 14 and 15 at 2:30 p.m., but the rehearsals are about much more than preparation for a performance. It's about people who love to sing coming together for the joy of singing.

According to Phillips, "The objective of the Singers is to promote good fellowship and bring joy and the appreciation of music to our members and to Holiday Island and the surrounding community. We are a non-profit organization with members of all ages. Singers need not be residents of Holiday Island and there are no tryouts."

New members are encouraged to join this fun-loving talented group of people.
