The Lincoln Senior Chorus

The Lincoln Senior Chorus is starting its singing schedule again.  The chorus was organized in 1967 and has been singing ever since.  The group has about 35 members and always looking for more.

The chorus practices on Monday mornings for an hour at the F Street Recreation Center at 13th ad F  Streets and sings a regular monthly schedule at senior citizen facilities.  The chorus also performs several special bookings.  The program for the regular schedule consists of hymns, happy songs, songs that the residents will recognize and can sing along.  A different program is sung at the other bookings.

The director is Jack Cole who has had much experience teaching and directing musical groups.  Susie Cook is the accompanist for thr group.

This is a great opportunity to volunteer and reach many people while doing something that you enjoy.

Kramer, a vocal performance major at UNL, graced the stage with poise, precision and prowess. Ninegar transformed nicely from his recent role as Cat in the Hat to an overbearing professor.
