The members of the Citrus Community Concert Choir love music. Through the work of the Music Director and the support of the Board of Directors, members practice weekly for several months before each concert improving their skills and capabilities as singers and musicians ensuring that quality is maintained at each concert. Proceeds from the community’s attendance at these concerts along with funding from personal contributions as well as advertising revenue from local businesses and support from the Citrus Chronicle newspaper has permitted us to offer scholarships to deserving Citrus County students continuing to study music.




A Light in the Darkness, the 2022 spring program presented by the Citrus Community Concert Choir, features music to comfort, inspire, and uplift. Songs about love, loss, light, and hope will be sung, and include a new arrangement of “Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star”, “City of Stars”, from the movie La La Land, and “Lullabye”, by Billy Joel. The concert will also feature a string quartet, along with Sally Smith-Adams, pianist.
The concert’s centerpiece is a modern Requiem in English and was written in 2018 by Michael John Trotta. This 8 movement work uses poetry, as well as Scripture, to convey the deep feelings one experiences at the loss of a loved one.

The choir began rehearsing this program in early 2020, but the pandemic intervened. Karen Medrano, director, is so pleased to get the opportunity to present it this year. There will be 2 concerts: Saturday, April 9th, 2:00pm, at Faith Lutheran Church in Lecanto, and Sunday, April 10th, 3:00pm, at First Presbyterian Church Inverness. Tickets are $10 and students are admitted free. Proceeds go to fund our scholarship program.
