Chorale recruiting additional members, planning concerts

The four-part, nonprofit organization boasts close to 40 members who rehearse from 7 to 9 p.m. Thursdays at the Enumclaw Senior Center. The next round of rehearsals begins Sept. 7.

As it celebrates 40 years of entertaining people throughout the area, the Cascade Foothills Chorale is recruiting new members and gearing up for a winter performance.

The four-part, nonprofit organization boasts close to 40 members who rehearse from 7 to 9 p.m. Thursdays at the Enumclaw Senior Center. The next round of rehearsals begins Sept. 7.

New members are welcome. Auditions are not required; there is a $40 fee to join.

The Cascade Foothills Chorale was founded in 1977 by the late Bob Estby, Enumclaw High School choir director. One of the organization’s founding members, Trudy D’Armond, was a former student of Estby’s. She continues to sing with the organization and serves on the CFC board of directors as vice president.

“The power of music can bring people together in ways that no other form of artistic expression can,” D’Armond said. “The blending of voices, teamwork and strive for quality is the drive of this organization, all combined with great comradeship amongst the members. “

Cascade Foothills Chorale will celebrate the Christmas season with concerts Dec. 9 and 10 at Trinity Lutheran Church in Enumclaw.
