Community chorus sings live

The Teaneck Community Chorus will sing “The Rain is Over and Gone,” its first live concert since the pandemic, on Sunday, June 12, at 3 p.m., at Teaneck High School. There will be free admission for Teaneck’s first responders and their families.

The chorus, directed by Steven Bell, will present a wide range of music to inspire, comfort, lift up, and help bridge the troubled waters people still face today. Pianist Daniel Stocker, the Reggie Pittman/Loren Daniels Quartet, and singers from Teaneck High School, will accompany it.

“We sing with hope for the future and honor those who protect us in Teaneck, as we remember all we have lost to covid,” chorus president Anita Bluestone said. “As a community chorus, we want to give back to our first responders who have given so much to Teaneck during the time of covid.”

Teaneck’s first responders and their families include Holy Name staff, the Teaneck Volunteer Ambulance Corps, and the Teaneck Police and Fire departments. Members of those organization have to show ID with that affiliationat at the door.

The concert is funded in part by grants from the Puffin Foundation, the Bergen County Department of Parks, Division of Historic and Cultural Affairs, and a sponsorship from Holy Name.

Everyone is required to wear a mask, be fully vaccinated and boosted, and show proof of vaccination at the door; children under 5 cannot be admitted because they are not vaccinated.
