The Johnson City Senior Chorale welcomes the public to a musical celebration at 6 p.m. on Saturday, Nov. 9, at Memorial Park Community Center, 510 Bert St.

The Senior Chorale is joining with local churches, community organizations and the Johnson City Community Band to present “Home of the Brave,” a patriotic program that combines music, dance, and theater. This free event, featuring about 120 performers, also highlights the contribution the Johnson City Parks and Recreation Department’s community centers make to the arts.

The diverse and creative arts programming offered by the City of Johnson City to people of all ages can be found on the city’s website,, as well as in the Fun Guide and Senior Lifestyles publications.

Adults 50 and older are invited to join the Senior Chorale at any time during the year. The group meets weekly September through December and March through May to learn new music and perform in public venues. The Senior Chorale is funded through a Tennessee Arts Commission ABC grant and the Johnson City Senior Center Foundation.

Cherry Smith is the Senior Chorale director; Gail Squibb Morris serves as the accompanist.
