First concert of 2018: “With Strings Attached”

Lancaster Community Chorus presented “With Strings Attached” on Sunday, March 11, 2018 at 3:00 p.m. at Crossroads Event Center 2095 W. Fair Avenue, Lancaster OH 43130.  Guest Artists, Ohio Christian University Chamber Orchestra. Exploring new territory, Lancaster Community Chorus was excited to present their first concert with a string orchestra. Tied together only by the fact that all pieces have string accompaniment, the repertoire for this concert was varied in style and era and genre.

The opening concert of the 2016-2017 season, Sunday November 13, 2016, was entitled "Great Hymns of Faith ". The concert featured the world premiere of a new choral work, "Come, Thou Fount of Every Blessing", by composer Mark Hayes.  Mr. Hayes was commissioned by the chorus to compose this choral work in honor of its fifth season of community choral concerts.  The concert venue, the auditorium of the Crossroads Ministry Center, 2095 W. Fair Ave., Lancaster, Ohio, was filled to capacity!​  November 13, 2016 was proclaimed "Lancaster Community Chorus Day"!

​"Fabulous 50s was indeed fabulous!  Our largest June audience ever was amazing, soloists were awesome, instrumentalists were fantastic, and all helped the chorus have a special concert experience.  We agree with one audience member who left saying, 'what a wonderful way to spend a Sunday afternoon'. Thanks to all involved!!"
