Pensacola, Fla., September 2020 — The show must go on, despite damages sustained to our community from Hurricane Sally. A number of our southern Santa Rosa County members now face major transportation issues due to the closure of the Three Mile Bridge. In an effort to relieve some of this burden, PCC will be hosting weekly rehearsals in Gulf Breeze. Rehearsals will occur on Wednesdays beginning October 7, from 6:00-7:00pm, at Gulf Breeze United Methodist Church.
“Rather than asking across-the-bridge singers to come to us, we are excited for the opportunity to come to them,” says Alex Gartner, Artistic & Executive Director. “The transportation issues facing the residents of southwestern Santa Rosa County are crippling, to say the least. At the Pensacola Children’s Chorus, we firmly believe that all young people in our area should have equitable access to growing and thriving through music and performance. Establishing a location in Gulf Breeze is the best way we can continue to fulfill this mission.”
We invite all interested Santa Rosa County friends to join us for our first rehearsal October 7. Students, grades 1-12, interested in participating in the 2020-2021 season of the Pensacola Children’s Chorus should register at www.pensacolasings.org/reopening. Pizza will be provided for attending singers.
The Pensacola Children’s Chorus is a local non-profit, community-based arts education program that offers three main-stage performances a season. Christmas on the Coast, planned for December 11-13, 2020, is a dazzling holiday spectacular that transforms sunny weather into a winter wonderland. One World, Many Voices, slated for February 21, 2021, celebrates the power of what is accomplished when voices unite in song. Our final performance, Showtime, scheduled for May 7-9, 2021, is a Broadway-quality variety show featuring the best music from both stage and screen.
No prior experience or training is required. Members may choose from our in-person rehearsals or join our virtual program, eSing. Financial assistance is available for qualifying families. To register or for more information about the Pensacola Children’s Chorus, please visit www.pensacolasings.org.
