The Lake Benton Area Singers will be starting up again on Sunday, March 29 at 7:00 p.m. in the Kimball Building next to the Lake Benton Opera House. The group welcomes anyone from the area to join the chorus, no matter the level of experience in singing. Music will be in three parts, soprano, also and a combined men’s section. This year’s songs will come from shows like “Cats”, “Les Miserables” and “Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat,” as well as others.

The project will be directed by Graham Wrightson of Brookings, S.D., an Assistant Professor on the staff of South Dakota State University. Wrightson says that all ages and abilities are welcome and that no auditions will be held. Just show up. “We will even teach the tone-deaf to sing in a friendly and forgiving environment,” says Wrightson.
The group performed a benefit concert on Saddle Horse weekend last year, and a similar performance is planned for this year.
Weekly attendance will be encouraged but will not be required to be in the group. Wrightson says that that even if singers can’t make the initial kickoff on the 29th, they may join in at any time. “If you enjoy singing or simply want a fun social activity to perk up your Sunday evenings, this may be the project for you,” Wrightson says.
