DeQuincy Community Choir to perform Saturday
The DeQuincy Community Choir will perform at the town’s Christmas festivities this coming Saturday, Dec. 7.
The community choir is an a cappella choir made up of residents of DeQuincy and the surrounding area. Among the choir members are ministers, school teachers, refinery workers, office workers, church musicians, housewives, retirees, etc. All have sung in this type of choral group in the past and enjoy the experience of singing four part a cappella music. Diane Engle and Melonee Cooper are the directors of the choir.
The Buford family is an interesting part of the choir this year. Family members singing include David Buford and his three children, Rachel, Robyn and Royce. All of the Buford family are products of DeQuincy school choral programs as well as their local church. Rachel says, “The gift of music is a lifetime gift to be shared with everyone.”
Some of the choir members will be dressed in vintage 1903 clothing to commerate the founding of DeQuincy.
The choir will perform at the downtown McNamara building location. The performance will be moved to the DeQuincy United Methodist Church gym if there is rain.
