Plymouth Rockers Ends Season On High Note
The Plymouth Rockers Senior Performing Chorus has been entertaining crowds since 1991. Recently, they held a special holiday concert at Plymouth City Hall, as sounds of holiday happiness echoed through the chamber.
Adorned in red jackets, a few dozen members belted out their favorite seasonal songs.
“We are serenading the city council because we love their support,” said Director David Halligen. “We like to entertain.”
For the past nine years, Halligen has led the singing group. The chorus performs all over the metro at places like nursing homes, assisted living communities, and for people who are shut-in.
There is no limit to music choice. The Plymouth Rockers can belt out a little of everything– folk, Broadway show tunes, gospel and golden oldies.
The Plymouth Rockers boast a membership of more than 65 men and women over the age of 55. They come from 15 cities in the Minneapolis/St. Paul area.
The non-profit organization is not just a choir, but a community. In addition to singing, fellowship and friendships are also key components of the choir.
The Plymouth Rockers serenaded outgoing Mayor Kelli Slavik at their last singing event. They perform two public concerts every year, but they sing at 30 to 40 civic engagements every year.
