CHIPPEWA FALLS, Wis. (WEAU) -- “See trees of green, red roses too. I see them bloom for me and you. If you haven't guessed already, these are the lyrics to the song, "What a Wonderful World." While today, tomorrow or even yesterday may not seem like we live in a wonderful world. An upcoming event is bringing the theme alive through song.

The Choral Director Cathy Reitz of the Chippewa Valley Community Chorus joined the morning show to talk about two upcoming concerts.

The Chippewa Valley Community Chorus Concerts are on March 10 and 11 at the Heyde Center in Chippewa Falls. This year there are 60 members and the choir has been in singing since 1977. It holds rehearsals Tuesday evenings and performs in the early spring every year. The choir requires only a short commitment of nine weeks and works to gather the community together. The Chippewa Valley Youth Choir and the Stand in the Light Choir will also perform.
