Attention to all of you out there who, in the words of Karen Carpenter, like to “Sing, sing a song… Sing out loud, sing out strong!

The Kingsborough Musical Society Chorus, a not-for-profit organization under the direction of conductor Mark Mangini, would love for you to join them. The group’s mixed repertoire includes theater, folk, and classical music, plus they always perform two free annual concerts on the Kingsborough Community College campus (2001 Oriental Boulevard) in December and May, as well as a number of community outreach concerts at various locations throughout Brooklyn.

The chorus’ first rehearsal and audition for their annual spring concert will be Thursday, February 16. Rehearsals are Thursday evenings at 7:30 p.m. on the second floor of Kingsborough’s T-8 building. Sightreading is helpful but not mandatory.

The concert will be held May 6, during which time the chorus will be performing a medley from the Leonard Bernstein Broadway musical “West Side Story,” as well as other selections.

Parking is free, on campus, for chorus members.

For information about joining the chorus, call Steve Friedman at (718) 338-9132. You can also visit them on Facebook.
