IRON MOUNTAIN — The Dickinson County Community Chorus will begin its 51st season with the first rehearsal scheduled for Sept. 5, at 7 p.m.

This rehearsal will begin preparations for the upcoming “Sounds of Christmas” concert.

All rehearsals will be held on Tuesday evenings from 7 to 9 p.m. in the Fellowship Hall of the First Presbyterian Church, 395 Hamilton Ave. in Kingsford.

The chorus will be under the leadership of principal conductor, Crystal Hogan. Jean Panek will serve as accompanist for the group. Gail Vornkahl will serve as the associate conductor and John Calo will continue with the group as assistant director.
