North Florida Women’s Chorale Jacksonville Beach Concert
May 5 @ 4:00 pm - 5:30 pmFree
The North Florida Women’s Chorale is performing its annual free spring concert in Jacksonville Beach on Sunday, May 5th at 4PM, at Palms Presbyterian Church, at 3410 3rd Street South. This wonderful 35-plus member women’s choir prepares its 27th year-end concert with songs by and about women. Titled, “Much Ado About Women”, NFWC sings rich, moving songs of hope and encouragement for women’s roles in society. Selections include, “March of the Women”, a nod to the suffragette movement; a Shaker worker song, “I Will Be a Child of Peace”; and songs supporting family and each other with “Music in My Mother’s House” and “Rise Up”, respectively.
The chorus is celebrating its 13th year with director Kerry Fradley, accompanied by Kathleen Vande Berg as collaborative pianist. Kerry is also the founder and director of the St. Augustine Youth Chorus, chorus master for First Coast Opera, and a recipient of the ROWITA Award. Kathleen is currently organist/choir director at St. Cyprian’s Episcopal Church, director of the St. Augustine Chamber Singers, and ROWITA Award recipient, as well.
In addition to singing, the NFWC also selects a community service project for each concert theme. Please join us in donating items for women (and others) that are undergoing cancer treatments as we fill Care Packages for Cancer Patients.

We hope to see you Sunday May 5th at 4pm for this free concert at the Palms Presbyterian Church, 3410 3rd Street South, Jacksonville Beach, FL 32250.
