WCS Tour Choir to Hold Preview Concert

The Whitinsville Christian School Tour Choir will perform in an evening preview concert at Valley Chapel in Uxbridge, MA, on Sunday, March 6, at 6 p.m. Following the concert, light refreshments and a reception will be held in the church cafe.

The special concert is in preparation for the selective choir’s performance tour of New York City and New Jersey during Patriots’ Day weekend, April 15-18, 2016. The March 6 performance will feature the choir’s tour repertoire with additional performances by the school’s Encore vocal ensemble.

According to Joshua Lawson, WCS choir director, the biennial tour provides an opportunity for students “to glorify God with their gifts of singing and worship in a different community setting and through outreach activities pursued at the various locations.” Recent tours have taken the choir to Philadelphia, PA, and Washington, D.C.

Admission is free to the concert on March 6, but donations will be accepted to offset the choir’s travel expenses in April. The public is invited to come and hear the voices that State Senator Ryan Fattman recently called “the pride of the Blackstone Valley.” Valley Chapel is located at 14 Hunter Road in Uxbridge, just off of Rt. 16.

Katelyn B. Signs Letter of Intent

Whitinsville Christian High School senior Katelyn B. recently signed a letter of intent to play volleyball beginning in the fall of 2016 for Trinity Christian College in Palos Heights, IL. Katelyn was selected the Dual Valley Conference girls volleyball MVP last fall, and is a member of the basketball team, band, choir, and National Honor Society at WCHS.

Katelyn’s coach, Trinity alum Kris VandenAkker, said of her decision, “Katelyn has worked extremely hard to get to this point. I am very happy for her to have an opportunity to play the sport she is so passionate about at the next level, especially at my alma mater. The signing is a great way for her to finish off a great season. To God alone be the glory!”
