Jamestown RI Community Chorus

Great Choral Singing Since 1949

1943 Radio Broadcasts

A big part of the December 14 concert will be actual transcriptions from 1943 radio broadcasts. For example, we’ll play part of President Roosevelt’s Christmas Eve address to the nation. Linda Darnell will entertain the troops around the world as Army and Navy Chaplain Robert Workman delivers a message of hope. Johnson’s Wax brings you “Fibber McGee and Molly” as Fibber tries to find a decent Christmas tree the day before Christmas and the Jamestown Chorus players will re-enact a portion of a version of “A Christmas Carol” that originally starred Lionel Barrymore and Orson Welles. And what 1943 Christmas show wouldn’t be complete without audio of Bob Hope and Bing Crosby?

Choral Arts New England

Many thanks to Choral Arts New England for the emergency grant the chorus received to help pay for our wonderful 2020 Virtual Holiday Concert. CANE awarded twenty such grants to help with choral groups all over New England. Nearly sixty groups applied for the grant which connotes the value of choral singing in the larger community. We deeply appreciate their support.
