Beginning on Sunday afternoons in August, the Delaware Valley Choral Society will be in rehearsal preparing for its 10th anniversary Christmas concert.

The program will feature Cantata 140 “Wachet Auf” (Sleepers Awake) by J.S. Bach. Anyone who enjoys singing is invited to come starting Sunday, Aug. 25, at 2 p.m. and join the fun.

Because this is the 10th anniversary of formal founding of the choral society, members are invited to request their favorite seasonal carol, which will be performed at the concerts on Saturday, Nov. 30, and Sunday, Dec. 1.

Rehearsals will take place on Sundays starting at 2 p.m. at the Milford United Methodist Church, 206 East Ann St., Milford. Music and rehearsal CDs are provided to singers at their first rehearsal.

The Delaware Valley Choral Society is a non-profit group dedicated to performing major choral works in their original form. The society incorporates aspiring musicians from the area as well as professional musicians to bring major works of music to the community.
