No singing or dancing required to have a good time.

PROGRAM: The Washington Community Chorale 

The Washington Community Chorale under the direction of Matthew Boyce presented an enjoyable program of Christmas music. About one-half of the 70 member was able to attend but they were still able to present a festive program with a selection of some seasonal favorites followed by a few carols joined by Rotarians. 
The Chorale let us know there will be more music from the group over the upcoming weeks with performances at First Presbyterian Church, the Faith Presbyterian, and a December 4 program with the River City Brass Band at Upper St. Clair High School. December 12 bring your tuba, brass instruments to Crown Center Mall for Merry Tubaxmas under the direction of Jack Anderson, former PITT Band Director.
