"Surrounded by five mountains, it's quiet and serene, except at times like this, of course, we celebrate and sing." And that's just what we've been doing since 2004: celebrating and singing. Community Choirfest was established as an annual choral festival in the Shickshinny area. The first festival was hosted by St. Martha's Church in Fairmount Springs. It has attracted participants from Benton, Fairmount Springs, Hunlock Creek, Shickshinny and the surrounding areas. Each year has been different. The music changes. The format varies. Singers come and go. But the reasons we gather remain constant: a love of God, a love of music, and a love of our community.
Since its founding in 2004, the Shickshinny Area Community Choir has expanded its performance schedule beyond the Community Choirfest to include a Christmas concert, Christmas caroling, Lessons and Carols service, and a celebration of American music. The community choir is a place where local musicians of all ages and skill levels can gather for music-making and fellowship. Why not consider joining us? New singers are always welcome. We hope to see you at our next rehearsal. For more information, please contact us.
