Welcome to the Platteville Chorale and Platteville Children's Choir website. The chorale and children's choir program provide opportunities for people of all ages to make beautiful music. Drawing from Southwest Wisconsin, the groups include over a hundred members from well over a dozen communities in the area. Rehearsals and performances are mainly during the academic year.
Holiday Caroling Hometowne Friday Nights
December 4th, 11th and 18th
Terri Ellis is working with the Platteville Main Street Committee and Platteville Chamber of Commerce to organize small 4-5 member Family or Friend "Bubble" Groups for holiday caroling up and down Main Street in Platteville for "Hometowne Friday Nights". Groups will sing outside, wearing masks, and socially distancing for 1 hour (or less). The Friday event is scheduled from 4-8. Caroling groups will need to sign-up for a specific hour. This is not an event sponsored by the Platteville Chorale or PCC, but at least an opportunity for any families or singers that might like to spread a little Holiday cheer!
Tentative plans include singing in marked locations near 12 Baskets, Downtown Designs, Los Amigos, Avalon Theater and Morrisey Printing. Depending on numbers of groups interested, families or friend bubble groups will start at different locations on Main Street at the top of each hour, sing 2-3 carols, and proceed clockwise up and down Main Street. Groups will pass by the Holiday Inn at some point in their scheduled path. Julie Klein will have a cup of cocoa and packaged cookie for each caroler as a special treat! Depending on the numbers of people interested, groups could be caroling simultaneously in different locations.
A group representative should call Terri at (608)778-7930 by November 22nd.
