The Mon Yough Chorale, a community chorus based in the McKeesport and White Oak area, has scheduled several upcoming concerts, including a Memorial Day-themed celebration in Monongahela.
At 6 p.m. May 30, the chorale will perform in a Memorial Day-themed event at the Aquatorium in Monongahela, Washington County, at a ceremony to honor fallen troops.
Immediately following the ceremony, the Mon Yough Chorale will entertain at a reception at Monongahela Valley Hospital, Carroll Twp.
A spokeswoman said the chorale's big spring concert is scheduled for 3 p.m. June 3 at Sampson's Mills Presbyterian Church, 1665 Lincoln Way, White Oak.
Admission is $6 and the program will include competition and concert pieces that the chorale will be presenting a few days later at a chorale festival, or Saengerfest, in Reading, Pa.
That festival on June 9 will pit the local group against choirs and choruses from Altoona, Williamsport, Lebanon and Reading, followed by an evening concert that displays the musical talent of all the groups, the spokeswoman said.
