Community Chorus changes its name

The former Highland Community Chorus is has announced a name change. “HCC” will now stand for “Heartland Community Chorus.”

The organization will begin its fifth season this fall and collectively decided to adopt a name that is more inclusive to represent the variety of communities from which its singers come.

The Heartland Community Chorus is a performing ensemble for singers in the Highland area. Currently, singers come from half a dozen regional communities.

The Heartland Community Chorus celebrates a varied repertoire, including sacred and secular pieces, from both classical and modern composers. Members are selected by audition every year in the fall. General auditions are scheduled for Friday, Aug. 25 from 6:30 to 8 p.m. and Saturday, Aug. 26, from 10 a.m. to noon. All auditions will be held in the Highland Evangelical United Church of Christ Choir Room.

The Heartland Community Chorus performs two to three full-length concerts each year and currently meets for rehearsals from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. Mondays in Highland. Performances take place at various venues throughout the region.
