     The members of Island Hills Chorus are still riding high from winning their third-place medal in the Sweet Adelines International regional competition recently. IHC is a fun bunch of ladies who love to sing. Fresh from a well-received concert at the Chaplin Rainbow Stage in Huntington, we dove into rehearsals for our annual fund-raising Showcase, this year it was an original play-within-a-play called Heartland.
     But as a new member, the stand-out highlight for me was our opening for the New York City  Rockettes’ Christmas Show at Radio City Music Hall this past winter. Bragging rights for life! 
     Under the insightful direction of Tom Brucia we have grown in scale and scope. Mentorship efforts by our team leaders have made learning IHC’s  repertoire fun and achievable. 
     Opportunities abound for creative interaction. Members submit scripts for review, and one is chosen as our showcase event. New singers pair up with veterans to form quartets who perform with Island Hills Chorus and also arrange their own bookings, compete for medals and write parodies.
     Regional Workshops and private coaching sessions have been so enlightening, fulfilling and fun. I can’t wait to see what they offer at this autumn’s VocalFest!  
     Membership is always open and drop-in guests are welcome. So if you’d like to keep your mind sharp with music, hope to make new friends, or just need to get out of the house on Thursdays 7-10pm, join Island Hills Chorus at the Dix Hills Jewish Center at 555 Vanderbilt Parkway
Come for an evening... Stay for a lifetime.
