Welcome!  Thank you for attending the Faure Requiem concert!  

We invite you now to hear us sing Christmas carols at the Otto Bookstore on Friday, December 2, from 6 to 7 pm.  The festivities will continue with our participation in a massed ensemble at Trinity Episcopal Pro-Cathedral on Friday, December 16, also at 6 pm.  There will be a candlelight procession from the church to Park Place where the singing will commence.  The event is called "An Evening of Caroling and Giving," with proceeds being used to support Dwell, the church's foster care ministry.

Our Mission Statement

“The Williamsport Civic Chorus is an open community of singers dedicated to making fine music accessible to all through education, participation and inspiration.  Our diverse and inclusive membership welcomes all singers and listeners as we perform music from a wide range of cultures, ethnicities, and traditions.”

 

Music Director Michael (Mike) Connor earned a bachelor of arts degree in music from the Lock Haven University of Pennsylvania and a master of science in education from Bucknell, where as graduate assistant to the renowned Dr. William Payn, he frequently conducted the Bucknell University Chorale.  Currently, Mike teaches music at Central Mountain High School in Mill Hall.  He has served as Director of Vocal Activities at Lock Haven University, choir director for the Harmonia Gesang Verein, and as interim music director for the Williamsport Chamber Choir.  Mike studied with Simon Carrington in Sarteano, Italy and has conducted and sung with the Sarteano Chamber Choir. Having appeared as tenor soloist with the Civic Chorus on multiple occasions, Mike's demonstrated skills as an inspiring singer, composer, band, and orchestra director go hand-in-hand with his commitment to create a positive, safe, and enjoyable environment for performers.
