Concert at Washakie Museum and Cultural Center Sunday


April 30, 2016

WORLAND – With the weather teasing the community with one beautiful day followed by cold, windy, rainy, and snowy days, many people have gotten a case of cabin fever. What better way to ease that fever than going to a concert?

The Worland Psalm Choir and Joyful Ringers will be holding a concert at the Washakie Museum and Cultural Center at 2 p.m. on Sunday. “We do a concert yearly at Christmas and in the spring, usually around May,” Psalm Choir and Joyful Ringers member Nancy Fredrick said.

The Psalm Choir is a multi-denomination choir which sings at different churches throughout the year. “It’s kind of like a community church choir. The churches that don’t have their own individual choirs, we join together to sing at those different churches in the community on Sunday mornings,” Fredrick said. “Plus we do the two concerts,” she added.

The Joyful Ringers are a bell choir which is mainly composed of members of the Methodist Church. “The bells are owned by the Methodist Church, so the members are mostly from the church with a few people pulled in from other churches to make a full choir,” Fredrick said.

The two choirs join together to do the two yearly concerts, but there is hopes of the Joyful Ringers coming to other local churches. “They mostly play at the Methodist Church because that’s where the bells are located, but we are going to try to reach out to other churches in the future,” Fredrick said.

Everyone from the community is invited to the museum to hear the two choirs perform. “There is no admission fee,” Fredrick stated.
