AUBURN COMMUNITY CHORUS
An arena-ready voice is not required to join Auburn’s newest vocal group. Singers don’t even need to audition. The Auburn Public Theater’s community chorus, which begins rehearsing September 20th, emphasizes the first word of its title more than finesse. Organizer Amy Bellamy, a choir instructor and music professor at Cayuga Community College, is ready to leave her lecture voice at the door when she leads the choir through its songs.?I want to keep it light-hearted and fun,?Bellamy said. Something where people can come and learn a little about singing and have a really good time doing it.
