Holiday Island Singers welcome new singers
HOLIDAY ISLAND -- After a wonderfully received spring concert and a brief summer break, the Holiday Island Singers are beginning their rehearsal schedule once again on Aug. 15.
Rehearsals are held every Wednesday from 1:30 to 3:30 p.m. in the ballroom of the Holiday Island clubhouse, and the long-term goal is to prepare for their holiday concert on Dec. 15 at 7 p.m. and Dec. 16 at 3 p.m.
But an important message from this group is, "It's not only about the destination. It's really about the journey. Every Wednesday rehearsal promises to be full of challenges, growth, friendship, and lots of laughs."
Singers' President Jackie Phillips says, "We are thrilled to have Kerry Hays return as our director. He has been such an inspiration to us, and he has a gentle, unique way of encouraging us as a group to sing to our potential and beyond. I know this season (and the concerts) will be even more fun than the last. And we are blessed to have Heather Hays return to us as our accompanist as well."
Anyone who loves to sing is welcome to join the group. There are no tryouts, and members don't even need to live in Holiday Island. First-timers should arrive at 1:15 on Wednesday, Aug. 15 for a brief orientation.
