The Westbrook Village Voices Choir Program was formed 25 years ago to give residents and community members, who enjoy singing, an opportunity to continue developing their musical talent. Members enjoy fun and focused rehearsals each week during the season. In addition, exciting opportunities to perform are offered to Village Voices Choir members.
During the Village Voices first rehearsal on January 9th, we learned that our amazing Men's Quartet is performing in the Spring Concert.
After being on hiatus during the 2018 Winter Concert, the four talented singers, (l-r) Gene Brandwein, Mike Eaton, George Lund and George Hoffman, are diligently practicing a rousing 1950s ditty. All the more reason for everyone to plan on attending the show!
