Singing in the Summer with the Lyric Chorus of SMC Emeritus College

Santa Monica, California –SMC Emeritus Colleges’ Lyric Chorus in Concert sings in the summer on Thursday, June 9, 2016 at 11:00 a.m. in the Martin Luther King, Jr. Auditorium at the Santa Monica Public Library, 601 Santa Monica Blvd.  The twenty plus member chorus put their audience in the mood for summer with a performance of seasonal songs and Broadway tunes.

Founded in the 1940s as the Santa Monica Lyric Chorus, the group became the Lyric Chorus of SMC Emeritus College when the Emeritus College was founded in the 1970s.  Chorus members sing in three-part harmony under the direction of Bill Elliott, who has been the chorus’ director since 1986. Assistant director and pianist Tom Gerhold has accompanied the Lyric Chorus for over twenty years. This Summer Sing performance is sure to be a big hit for all ages.
