If your membership number is less than 100,000, you’ve been a member for well over 50 years. If your membership number is larger than 525,000, you’ve just joined within the last year. But old or new, you’ll want to be sure to save the latest Harmonizer magazine. Even if you’re not a history person, that 75th year publication with stories and pictures is worth having around.

This picture summary describes some, but not all of the activities enjoyed by those who attended the Illinois District Spring Convention in Washington, IL (April 12-13, 2013). Though others may enjoy, it is basically prepared for Coles County Chorus members, past members and other friends…including the great guys from the Belleville Chorus who supplied almost half of the singers for the combined Down State Chorus.
Even though it took place a month after the original scheduled date, the Coles County Chorus’ 19th Annual Lenten Benefit Concert was a success. A freewill offering collected from the audience during the one-hour program raised nearly $2,500 for local charities dedicated to fighting hunger and homelessness in Coles County.
This is a first! The Coles County Chorus takes the stage in Washington, Illinois April 13th with men from the Sounds of Harmony Chorus (Belleville, IL), the Okaw Valley Chorus (Salem, IL), the Mississippi Valley Chorus (Collinsville, IL) and the Florissant Valley Men of Harmony (Florissant, MO).
