After an 18-month hiatus due to the pandemic, the Plainville Choral Society is back. Under the direction of Greg Wilfrid, PCS is preparing for its holiday show “Songs of Good Cheer: A Concert and a Benefit,” which will be performed Friday, Dec. 10 and Saturday, Dec. 11.
A news release touting the group's return states, "For more than 50 years, PCS has brought music to Plainville and the surrounding communities and attending the holiday concert has become an event which brings back memories for generations, and creates new ones. The members are anxious to be able to perform again after two years!"
The Plainville Choral Society's Dec. 10 concert will take place at The Congregational Church of Plainville, 130 West Main St. Tickets are $15 to attend in-person. To enjoy the show via livestream, the cost is $10.
On Dec. 11, PCS will lead a Virtual Holiday Carol Sing-a-long benefitting the Plainville Food Pantry. All logging on to this virtual performance will receive a digital booklet of lyrics so they can sing along with the group from the comfort of home. PCS will accept donations during the sing-a-long, and the funds will be split 50/50 with the food pantry. Donations may be made directly on the livestream.
Greg Wilfrid stated, “One of our great joys as a group is audience sing-a-longs in our holiday concerts. Even though we are not able to do it in person, we would rather do it virtually, than not at all. Holiday music and a great cause to benefit – what’s not to love?”
In-person tickets for the Dec. 10 performace can be purchased from any PCS member. Tickets will not be available at the door. To purchase the Dec. 10 or 11 livestream, visit pcsmusic.net.
