Chamber Choir Performance
The GD Chamber Choir will give a public concert at 2 p.m., December 2, at St. Joseph's Church (Our Lady of Grace), 28 Tarbell Street, in Pepperell. The concert is free, but donations will be gratefully accepted. Proceeds will help the group get to Spain for an exciting singing tour next year. The concert will include an hour of music with some special surprises, including a choral piece written by a rising young composer with local roots. Refreshments will be provided in the church basement immediately following the concert. Please come out and support this talented group of singers!
