After a summer-long hiatus, the Howland Cultural Center Community Chorus will resume its weekly rehearsal schedule at 7 p.m. on Monday, Sept. 15. Mike Tabon, chorus director, welcomes all who enjoy singing from seventh graders to adults, able to commit to a weekly rehearsal schedule. One does not have to read music, although it’s a plus, and no audition is required.

The chorus sings a variety of music and learns to sing in harmony. It enjoys performing and would like to hear from any sources interested in knowing more about the chorus and its performance schedule. Tabon, chorus director, has an impressive and extensive music background. For 36 years, he was the music director of the middle and high schools in the Beacon City School District. He brings his experience to the Howland Cultural Center and to the development of the community chorus.

To contact Tabon directly, his e-mail address is [email protected]. For further information and/or directions, call the Howland Cultural Center at 845-831-4988. The center is located at 477 Main St., in Beacon.
