Cascade Foothills Chorale has new rehearsal space

The group is also considering a chance to perform in D.C.

These are exciting days for members of the Cascade Foothills Chorale.

Not only is the community group in the midst of welcoming new additions, but the chorale also is rehearsing in new quarters and considering an offer to perform in the nation’s capital.

For years, the group had met at the Enumclaw Senior Center, but when the season began Sept. 5, the CFC was met at Enumclaw Middle School. The change came because the CFC board of directors felt in need of a rehearsal space better suited to a chorale environment.

Rehearsals are from 7 to 9 p.m. Thursdays and, until Oct. 3, the group will be recruiting new members. The choral welcomes men and women familiar with choral singing as bass, tenor, alto and soprano voices. Students 16 to 17 years old may join the chorale with written parental permission.

Seasonal membership dues are $40 per adults and $20 for students. Dues are tax deductible as the CFC is a 501(c)3, nonprofit organization.

The CFC is now preparing for its 43rd holiday concert. Titled “Christmas Magic,” the show will be presented Dec. 7 and 8 at Calvary Presbyterian Church in Enumclaw.

Aside from the holiday concert, chorale members will be discussing an invitation to attend the 2021 Veteran’s Memorial Choral Festival in Washington, D.C.

The Cascade Foothills Chorale is guided by Artistic Director Sadi Wentz, accompanied by Collaborative Pianist David Kellogg.
