PLAINVILLE – The Plainville Choral Society will begin rehearsals for its Christmas Concert starting Sept. 12, which will see the return of Peter Peluso as interim music director.

Rehearsals will begin Monday, Sept. 12 at 7 p.m. at Gloria Dei Lutheran Church at 355 Camp St. in Bristol. Auditions are not required.

"Just bring your love for singing and join a group of men and women of all ages and backgrounds who enjoy bringing music to the community of Plainville and surrounding towns," said Eileen Glancy, publicity coordinator for the Plainville Choral Society.

The Christmas Concert will be held Dec. 2 and 3 at 7 p.m. at Gloria Dei Lutheran Church. Glancy said that songs in the program will include familiar carols and holiday favorites, as well as some original compositions.

"This concert has been a tradition for more than 50 years, with multiple generations attending as children with their families," said Glancy.

Glancy said that some who have attended the Christmas Concert in past years have gone on to join the Plainville Choral Society.

"Many have also enjoyed joining the choral group on stage to sing the 'Hallelujah Chorus,'" she said.

Glancy said that the Board of Directors for the Plainville Choral Society are excited to announce the return of Peluso as director for the concert. He was the director of the Plainville Choral Society for 42 years.

"Peter returned to sing with the group last year and is looking forward to once again be holding the baton to conduct the group," she said.

Peluso said that the Plainville Choral Society is a "great group" and that he has missed them.

"It's good to be back rehearsing and performing and making music with my friends," he said.
