The Cambridge Community Chorus wraps up its annual auction Friday — the chorus is nearly halfway to its goal of $10,000 — and presents its Spring Concert at 8 p.m. Saturday at Harvard University’s Sanders Theater.

The concert is to feature soloists and orchestra (including players from California’s innovative, self-directed orchestra, A Far Cry) under the direction of Jamie Kirsch. Works are to include John Corigliano’s setting of Dylan Thomas’s poem “Fern Hill” (1961) and Franz Schubert’s Mass in E-flat Major (1828). The soloists are to be Deborah Selig, soprano; Katherine Growdon, mezzo-soprano; Matthew Anderson and Michael Pfitzer, tenors; and Christiaan Smith-Kotlarek, bass.

General admission tickets are $15; tickets for students and seniors are $10. For information, visit The chorus is a nonprofit that has been welcoming singers of all ages, from Cambridge and beyond, regardless of musical training or experience and without audition.
