Sharing details on upcoming holiday concerts by nearby regional choruses with several Southborough members.

Many Southborough residents are active members of regional choruses based in neighboring towns. Those groups have asked me to share news on their concerts this weekend and/or next.

Below are the details on relevant community chorus concerts taking place next door, plus a reminder about the Southborough-based Handel’s Messiah Concert.

While I’m sharing this news, I should also remind that a free, outdoor community singalong is scheduled for this Friday night, hosted by the Girl Scouts. You can find those details here.
