STILLWATER, Okla. — The Stillwater Chamber Singers are back with the start to a new season of music.

The group’s first concert of the season is at St. Andrew’s Episcopal Church Nov. 3 at 2:30 p.m. Admission is free.

Conductor Natasa Karaca said the singers will be doing 12 pieces.

“We’re doing music from the British Isles and we’ll open with some early renaissance music,” she said. “We’ll also include part of Benjamin Britten’s ‘Rejoice in the Land.’ It’s the centennial of his birth. We’re then ending with a couple of folk songs from Ireland.”

The group, comprised of members from Stillwater, Ponca City, Edmond and more, rehearse once a week at the First United Methodist Church.

“There will be something for everybody,” she said. “We have a variety of repertoire that spans centuries and different styles.”

The singers have been practicing for about nine weeks.

Karaca said she expects a good turnout and welcomes anyone interested in joining to inquire about an audition following the concert.
