New community choir seeks singers
Mask & Mirror will launch community choir this winter
Attention singers: The Mask & Mirror Community Theatre is looking for you.
The local theater company which produces community stage productions for Tigard and Tualatin announced this week that it is putting together a community choir.
The addition of a high-quality choral group gives an additional outlet for the talent weve already attracted to Mask & Mirror, said the theater troupes founder and president, Gary Romans.
Known as The Mask and Mirror Singers the choirs first performance will be this winter, caroling around town.
Romans said the singers will perform across Tigard and Tualatin.
Only community choir in town
The choir will be open to anyone whether they are trained singers or newbies. Anyone is welcome, Romans said.
The Mask & Mirror Community Choir will perform at various community venues, senior centers, school and shopping centers throughout the year.
Romans said the group will perform any place where groups are in need of a bit of good, old-fashioned choral music for some entertainment.
Originally, Mask & Mirror said it had little plans to produce musicals long the territory of professional theater company Broadway Rose. But Romans said several people have come forward wanting to produce more music-related projects.
From my standpoint, we are trying to find a means to keep members interested and engaged, Romans said. We are finding opportunities for people to perform.
Like the community theater, Romans said the choir will fulfill a valuable need around town.
There are a lot of church choirs, but not to my knowledge, there isnt a community choir around town in Tigard or Tualatin, Romans said.
On top of that, Romans said, it also helps spread the word about Mask & Mirror and will help to grow the theater groups roster.
It serves as a needed recreational activity for our two cities by providing a performance outlet for talented non-actors who will hopefully join the Mask & Mirror Community Theatre family.
