Utility Relief organizers seek choir singers for Hagerstown concert

September 03, 2008

The organizers of a Utility Relief Benefit Concert that will be held in December at The Maryland Theatre in Hagerstown are looking for people to try out for a gospel choir.

Hagerstown City Councilwoman Alesia Parson-McBean said she would like to find 50 people to form the choir that will perform at the Dec. 18 show.

Only two people showed up Tuesday for the first round of auditions at the theater. The second and final audition is scheduled for Thursday from 5 to 8 p.m.

People who are interested may show up at the theater during those hours or schedule an audition by calling City Hall at 301-739-8577, ext. 116.

Participants must be 16 or older and are asked to bring a musical piece that will take about two minutes to perform.

The concert was introduced last year and about $21,000 was raised to help needy Hagerstown residents pay their utility bills.

David Jordan, executive director of the Washington County Community Action Council, the organization that manages the proceeds from the concert, said last month that about $18,000 was still available.
