On the first night the freshly-formed Kenai Peninsula Singers amassed 40 locals inside the Kenai Central High School choir room. Founder Simon Nissen, the school’s choir director, had no idea the group would be that large.
“What beast have I awoken?” Nissen said laughing. By the third rehearsal, Tuesday night, there was almost standing room only.
Dan Snyder came to watch his grandson, Hamilton Cox, sing with the group, but had to remain on his feet just inside the entrance.
“It looks like all the seats are getting taken up,” Snyder said scanning the room.
