The mission of the Citrus Community Concert Choir, Inc is to develop and share passion for choral music in our community. We carry out this mission by: Presenting several concerts yearly in Citrus County and, when possible, in other locations Ensuring that the quality and variety of our choral music is maintained at a consistently high standard Assisting our members to continually improve their skills and capabilities as singers and musicians.
The Citrus Community Concert Choir, Inc. is a not for profit organization that strives to bring new musical experiences to the residents of Citrus County. We present several concerts each year and also give back to the community by offering scholorships and financial assistance to those students that qualify and are interested in pursuing the vocal arts. It takes an entire community to support a program such as ours.

On Sunday, June 22, about 20 members of the Citrus Community Concert Choir will depart for France to participate in 70th anniversary celebrations commemorating the World War II, June 6, 1944 invasion of Normandy by Allied forces. The program is entitled "A Salute To Valor", and will be performed by almost 100 singers and 4 musicians under the direction of the noted American composer, Ed Lojeski. The husband of one of the singers, 87 year-old James Shirk, is a veteran of the D-Day landings, and it will be his first return visit since that momentous day. He was a machine-gunner on one of the landing craft, and on its second trip to the beach, his vessel was destroyed by German artillery. Although seriously wounded, he survived.
The first concert will be presented in Paris at La Trinite Church during the afternoon of June 19. The second performance will be the evening of June 21st in Sainte Mere Eglise, the first French village to be liberated during the invasion. The Cathedral of Bayeux is the site of the final concert on June 22nd.
Upon returning, the Choir will resume full rehearsals for their series of summer concerts featuring the music of Burt Bacharach. The concerts are scheduled for:
7:30pm Friday, August 1, 2014 - Good Shepherd Lutheran, Hernando
