HANNIBAL | Mark Twain Chorale, Hannibal's community chorus, is seeking additional singers to join the group. Their spring concert is tentatively set for Monday, June 1. A variety of music will be performed.

Nathan Hammock is the director for this season with assistance from Linda St. Juliana. The piano accompanist is Janet Ferguson. The Chorale is a non-auditioned group of approximately 50 members and welcome new singers to its membership, including high school students. Basic music reading ability is helpful, but the most important criteria is a desire to sing.

Their first rehearsal will be held at 7 p.m. Monday, March 2, at the Choir Rehearsal room in the Roland Fine Arts Center at HLGU and will continue each Monday at 7 p.m. at Trinity Episcopal Church in Hannibal.

For more information or to sign up, please contact Susan Humphreys at 573-406-2750 or Jeff Asmussen at 573-406-8616.
