Founded in 2004 with a diverse mix of voices in its membership, The CCC consists of 50 individuals. Choir membership is open to all—no audition or memorization is required, just a love of choral arrangement. Members meet weekly at the Unitarian Universalist Fellowship of Corvallis with the mission “to build community and to make beautiful music,” according to coordinator Nan Chaney.
This year’s spring concert will showcase a variety of music they’ve never performed, as well as a few favorites from past performances. The repertoire for this concert includes “All God’s Critters Got a Place in the Choir,” “Bridge Over Troubled Water,” “Bright Morning Stars,” “Fire and Rain,” “Every Night When the Sun Goes in,” and more. There’s also going to be a sing-along (crosses fingers, “no ‘Mamma Mia,’ no ‘Mamma Mia…’”).
The director for this event is Dr. David Servias, music director at the Unitarian Universalist Fellowship of Corvallis and member of the OSU music department. Accompanying the choir’s performance is OSU student Cassie Simpson Fry.
The spring concert will take place at the Unitarian Universalist Fellowship of Corvallis, 2945 NW Circle Boulevard, on Sunday, June 1 at 3 p.m. Admission is free with a cash or canned food donation for the South Corvallis Food Bank.
