The music program is presenting three concerts in the upcoming weeks, all directed by Dr. Jim Taylor, director of choral activities.

The Community Chorus will perform a production titled “Songs for the Spirit” 7:30 p.m. Tuesday, Nov. 20, at First United Methodist Church in Longview, 400 North Fredonia St.

Classic folk songs and sacred anthems will be among the performed genres.

The Youth Chorus and Camerata Singers will perform 7:30 p.m. Nov. 27 at Trinity Episcopal Church in Longview, 906 Padon St. One of the selected pieces is a silly song written by Taylor called “30 Purple Birds.” Originally a poem from his childhood, Taylor wrote music to accompany it. The song is sung with a strong New Jersey accent.

The KC Chorale and Orchestra will perform 8 p.m. Dec. 4 at First United Methodist Church in Longview.

“This Christmas concert is usually a mixture of worship service songs and also some fun stuff,” Taylor said.
