Choir begins rehearsals

IV Leader Staff

The Illinois Valley Community College Choir will begin rehearsals from 6 to 8 p.m. Monday, Jan. 14 in Room D 223 on the main campus. There is no rehearsal on Monday, Jan. 21 and rehearsals resume Monday, Jan. 28.

The IVCC Choir is open to anyone in the district. Director Norman Engstrom said, “I like to work with different types of music from throughout music history, from Renaissance madrigals to arrangements of popular songs. The music is both fun and challenging. The final satisfaction comes from the public concert in early May.”

Participation is free or choir can be taken for college credit. For information, contact Engstrom at (815) 244-0279 or attend one of the first rehearsals.
