Northwestern Singers season begins in September

The Northwestern Singers will begin its 2011-12 season on Sept. 12.

Rehearsals are from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. Monday nights at Westminster Presbyterian Church in Austin from September through May. The organizers say anyone who can sing may join them.

The season includes three main performances:

• Nov. 5 is the annual benefit concert for youth music. To date NWS has raised more than $33,000 for school youth music programs.

• Jan. 21 and 22 will be the annual winter show at Paramount Theatre. The theme is "Timeless" and features favorite songs from today and time gone by.


• May 18-19 is the annual spring show.

In existence for more than 50 years in Austin, the Northwestern Singers is a mixed choral group whose members are from the Austin, Albert Lea and Rochester areas. They share a love of singing and performing. Members range in age from post high-school to 70-plus and are from many backgrounds.

Under the direction of Brock Besse, the group's repertoire includes all types of music, including Broadway, contemporary, old standards and gospel.
