Community choir hopes to inspire audiences with opening concert

PLANT CITY – The Plant City Community Choir will open its sixth season with a pair of concerts of spiritual songs and music of inspiration.

The 25-member choir performs songs of all types, but next month’s concerts include many religious tunes, choir member Lark Underwood said. The song list includes “God Has Smiled on Me,” “Soon and Very Soon,” and “Were You There.”

Director Kenneth Watts has included his own arrangements of classic hymns such as “Amazing Grace,” “His Eye Is on the Sparrow,” as well as modern anthems such as “Afrika Gloria.”

Paul Hetrick, distinguished community performer, will sing several solos.

The performances include:

• 7:30 p.m. April 4, Holy Innocents Episcopal Church, 604 N. Valrico Road, Valrico.

• 7:30 p.m. April 5, St. Clement Catholic Church, 1104 N. Alexander St., Plant City.

Doors for both performances open at 7 p.m.

Tickets for adults are $10 if purchased in advance from a

choir member or at www.pccommunitychoir.com, or $12 at the

door. Admission for children 12 and younger and seniors 62 and older is $8 in advance or $10 at the door. Tickets are also available during regular business hours at the Greater Plant City Chamber of Commerce, 106 N. Evers St., and the office of St. Clement Catholic Church.

The choir, formed six years ago, is open to singers 16 years old and older, Underwood said. Current choir members range in age from 25 to 76, she said.

The choir’s next performance will be a concert of patriotic songs, she said.
