In February of 2007, the Pickerington Parks and Recreation Division began meetings to organize a community singing group.
At the first organizational meeting, we were introduced to Director Emily Fisher and many things were discussed. Director Fisher scheduled dates and times for auditions, and the chorus was officially under way.
Our first rehearsal began in May, 2007 with 15 members present. … We were all excited and looking forward to our first performance. That year we performed at the Giant Eagle Concert Series, Pickerington Arts Festival, Pickerington Violet Festival, Pickerington Lion’s Club Celebration, Pickerington Community Thanksgiving Program, and a Christmas program in conjunction with the Satellite Division of the Columbus Children’s Choir. (The chorus presently consists of eight of the members who participated in the first rehearsal)
In the spring of 2009 Lisa Boyer took over the leadership of the Chorus and has continued to expand the group and its horizons.
Our community participation and performances have continued to grow. Since that first year, we have performed at the Violet Township Bicentennial Celebration, Pickerington Lion’s Club Celebration, Pickerington Community Thanksgiving Program, Pickerington Community Christmas Celebration, Caroling in the Square, Pickerington Nursing & Rehab. Center, Amber Park Assisted Living, Children’s Hospital, Pickerington Alumni Association, a presentation with the Satellite Division of the Columbus Children’s Choir, and a fund raiser in association with Barnes and Noble.
We meet in the Fall and work towards a Holiday concert, and again in the Spring to perform for various funtions as described above.
