The Mapleton Chorale is scheduled to perform on Sunday, April 16, at 4:30 p.m. at the art museum. The Mapleton Chorale was founded in 1994 by a small group of Mapleton residents with a love for choral music and a desire to rehearse and perform a broader repertoire than generally found in a traditional church setting. This dedicated community choir seeks musical excellence in every piece and enjoys singing a variety of music including classical, spirituals, folk songs, sacred hymns and popular tunes.
The Nebo Philharmonic Orchestra will present a free concert on Sunday, March 19, at the Springville Museum of Art.
