The Pahrump Visual and Performing Arts Council is preparing for the start of its next season and looking for new members.
Rehearsals begin February 26 for her spring season.
“On the heels of a different, yet very fun and successful holiday season, we can’t wait to do it again,” said PVPAC Treasurer and Community Choir Director Ginger Forbes.
The Pahrump Community Choir holds concerts throughout the year and recently performed during the Christmas season.
In 2021, Forbes said the band decided to mix up the holiday event to include a talent portion, to better engage the community.
“Last season we did something that we haven’t done before but will do again,” Forbes said. “We turned our Christmas concert into a holiday talent show and invited the community to participate.”
Everyone had a great time, Forbes said.
“We had kids from the high school drama class, the band and part of the choir. We were also asked to join the [Pahrump Valley High School] choir for their winter concert,” Forbes said. “We were very happy to support and join them. We will add the talent show to our plans again in the future.”
The Pahrump Community Choir is sponsored by PVPAC and has performed together for decades, Forbes said.
The group started in 1994.
Today, more than 25 years later, the choir is still going strong and Forbes said everyone is relishing the opportunity to participate.
“Some of the founding members who help hold this band together still sing with us,” Forbes said.
For its Spring 2022 season, Forbes said the band will be digging into their archives to pick out some of the most beloved songs performed over the years that everyone can’t wait to see their old favorites again.
New members are welcome, Forbes said.
“We hope to increase our membership this season and add more talent to the group,” she said. “If you’re 16 and over, come join us. We’re also hoping to include instruments with some of these pieces to make them even better. If you play, we’d love to have you. We’re a non-denominational choir and everything everyone is welcome.
Rehearsals for the Pahrump Community Choir will begin at 6:30 p.m. Wednesday, beginning January 26, at the LDS Church, 921 E. Wilson Road.
The spring concert will be scheduled sometime in early May.
