Reading Community Singers ~ First Rehearsal ~ New Members Welcome! 

READING, MA — Mark your Calendar! Reading Community Singers is starting rehearsals for their 2024 Spring Concert ~ “Melodies of Memory”, on Tuesday, January 30, from 7:30 to 9:30 at Old South United Methodist Church, 6 Salem St., Reading, MA. New Singers may attend up to 3 rehearsals to “try RCS out,” before registering. Please arrive early for check-in.   

Founded in 1919, Reading Community Singers is a non-audition chorus and New Members are always welcome of every voice and experience level, ages 16 to whatever! And as with most choruses – RCS is always looking for “just a few more good men”! They only ask that singers can match pitch and carry a tune – both of which are much easier to do working together in a chorus. Commitment to attending rehearsals is also a must.

“Melodies of Memory” will include “Jungle Book Medley,” “Danny Boy,” “Music Vibrates in the Memory,” and “3 Madrigals”. Elijah Botkin is again the Artistic Director for the Spring Concert. He first directed RCS for “A Jubilant Song” in Spring of 2023. Joe Beninati will again be the Rehearsal and Concert Accompanist. This is Beninati’s 20th season working with RCS. 

Rehearsals continue every Tuesday through May 7, with a Dress rehearsal on Friday, May 10, and the Concert on Saturday, May 11, at 7:30 pm Reading Memorial High School. 

Online registration is open, or you can register in person. For more information about this Concert or RCS in general, please go to, or send an email to
