The Wimberley Community Chorus
gives three concerts a year. We have three performances in the spring, one on the Fourth of July, and three performances in the fall. Rehearsals are on Monday nights for two hours.
Do you like to sing? Can you sing on pitch?
If you like to sing, the Wimberley Community Chorus meets on Monday nights at various churches in Wimberley. We usually rehearse for 3 months prior to each concert. Membership is open on the first Monday after Labor Day and again on the first Monday after New Year’s Day each year. In addition membership is open the first Monday in June in preparation for our Patriotic Hometown 4th of July Concert in collaboration with the Hill Country Community Band. The Chorus has between 60 and 70 singers for each concert season, including members of all ages as well as high school and college students.
Brief History of the Chorus:
The Chorus was formed in early spring of 1980 and incorporated as a non-profit organization one year later. The primary purposes of the group are: to encourage and promote the study of music by those persons who are committed to the objectives of the organization; to share musical talent with the community and each other; and to encourage the study of music in all its facets. As our motto and logo indicate, the chorus always strives to remain “in harmony with the hills.”
For over 34 years the Chorus has been delighting large audiences with classical, popular, and patriotic music. There is no membership fee and concerts are presented at no admission charge. Financial support comes from the community through an ongoing Patronage Program, the categories of which are: Contributor ($15 - $24), Sponsor ($25 - $49), Patron ($50 - $99), Major Contributor ($100 - $200), Sustaining Member ($201 - $499). Benefactors are persons giving more than $500.
This spring the Chorus will be in rehearsal from January 12th through April 6th in preparation for our spring season with concerts to be presented on April 10th at 7:00 P.M, April 11th at 7:00 P.M. and April 12th at 3:00 P.M at Wimberley United Methodist Church. The Chorus will be conducted by Jimmy Kritikos, Choral Director at Canyon High School.
