Stephanie Tapley lead a recent meeting at the United Methodist Church in Mena to develop a new version of a Mena community choir. Stephanie Tapley also leads a choir at the University of Arkansas Rich Mountain and the United Methodist Church. A previous version of a Mena choir dissolved when their director moved away. Several of those attending were members of the previous Mena choir.
The new group discussed basic organizational items including what their official name should be, possible performances, and the time and location for rehearsals. It was agreed that Mondays at 6:30 pm at the United Methodist Church would work.
This is just the beginning of this community effort. It is hoped that many more will come and be part of this joyful choir.
