SUMMIT, NJ - Concord Singers, a women’s community chorus, will host an open sing at its first rehearsal of the fall season on September 11, beginning at 7:15 p.m., at Calvary Episcopal Church. The group offers a welcoming environment and friendly musical home to both novice and experienced singers. Members come from many age groups, professions and backgrounds, and new members are welcome with no audition required.

Lenti, recently-hired as conductor and artistic director, is a choral conductor, music educator and is, herself, talented soprano soloist. She is a full-time teacher at Kent Place School, private voice teacher, and has worked as the Assistant Conductor of the Oratorio Society of New York.
