Round Rock Community Choir
In 1985, the Round Rock Community Choir was founded by Dr. Linda Bolding who, along with a group of community members, was committed to the advancement of fine arts in the Round Rock area. Today, singers drive to Round Rock from all parts of Austin and from Cedar Park, Georgetown, Leander, Pflugerville, Hutto, Taylor, Liberty Hill, Lakeway, Lampasas, Belton, Salado and Weesatche to share the wide variety of singing opportunities the choir provides.
The choir is well known for the quality of entertainment ranging from the highly comically “Mystery Dinner” to the “Casual Classics” which presents a major classical work with orchestra. “Swanee” is a music variety show divided into three different musical theme segments, plus a spiritual segment. During the Christmas season the Yuletide Carolers sing in Victorian costumes for private events. Madrigal dinners have been a part of seasons as well. The choir is available by request for community and business organization functions throughout the year. RRCC has made several recordings that are available for sale at each performance.
RRCC singers range in age from students in high school to retirees. They come from all walks of life and have varied degrees of musical experience. RRCC is unique in providing singers with the opportunity to showcase their individual musical talents, whether from opera, musical comedy, country-western or gospel. It may be as a soloist or part of an ensemble. The Tap Society offers singers the change to dance regardless of previous dancing experience. Dr. Bolding, and now following in her footsteps Randi Bolding, encourages members to have fun and express themselves in ways they never dreamed they could.
