McGRATHPR.com – Pilgrim Festival Chorus (PFC), the region’s principal non-profit community choral ensemble, invites singers throughout the region to join them for open auditions at two Welcome Nights.  On Monday, September 11 and Monday, September 18, at 6:30 pm, Music Director William B. Richter and Assistant Director Elizabeth Chapman Reilly welcome newcomers of all skill levels to learn about PFC and audition for vocal placement, if they wish, at Faith Community Church (formerly United Methodist Church), 29 Carver Road, Plymouth.  Rehearsals for the winter season begin at 7 pm immediately following. This year’s winter concert, A Hometown Christmas, consists of carols and seasonal music drawn from previous favorite PFC performances.

PFC is an auditioned choral group for male and female vocalists of all skill levels with about 80 active members, dedicated to the performance of choral music from many genres.  Launching their eighteenth season, PFC typically performs major concerts in the winter and spring each year.  Pilgrim Festival Singers, a PFC offshoot volunteer singing ensemble, performs an annual summer post-season concert of lighter music, and also engages in occasional appearances at local community events.
