Worcester Chorale stops singing

04/11/2014

Editor,

With a heavy heart, the Worcester Chorale bids farewell to our audience and to our community after nearly 40 years of singing.

Before we go, we want to thank publicly the Worcester County Arts Council, the Maryland State Arts Council and the Choptank Electric Trust, without whose support we would have had to say goodbye long ago.

We are also profoundly grateful to the leadership of the Atlantic United Methodist Church for its hospitality over the years. We owe more than we can fully express to the dedication, energy and expertise of our long-time Director, Billie Wall, and our brilliant accompanist and former singer, June R. Todd. You raised us up and inspired us to be our best.

Finally, we will miss all of you who supported us, through donations and dedications, and most of all by coming to share our love of music. You were the reason we existed and we thank you from the bottom of our hearts.

Over the next several weeks, we will make our extensive catalog of music available to schools, churches, and other non-profit performing arts groups.

If you are interested in our music, contact Jane Apson at 410-208-1396 or Charlotte Klapproth at 302-436-6231.

Meanwhile, we say goodbye, with a request that you all keep a song in your hearts.

Karen McClure, president
