Director's Notes

Thinking Christmas....in July!

Choral directors have this in common: they're thinking about Christmas music when the temperatures are soaring! That has been my experience over the last several days, as I've been pondering the chorale's 2013 Christmas program. I've been holed up in the one room in our house that has working air conditioning, and I'm happy to say that I'm ready to talk a little about our concert Wintersong.

I think you're really going to enjoy what the chorale has for you this year! There will be familiar things like Hark! The Herald Angels Sing and We Wish You a Merry Christmas. We're also going to treat you to some tasty music you may not be familiar with. That includes All Bells in Paradise, a new piece by John Rutter which he composed just last year for the annual Lessons and Carols from Kings College. Joining the chorale for Christmas this year, in addition to our wonderful pianist Jeri Kellan, will be the wonderful sounds of the harp and the oboe. And of course, the grand contributions of the College Church pipe organ!

Add to all this the opportunity for the audience to join in on some carols, and you've got the makings of a great Christmas celebration! Our concerts will be at College Church on December 6 and 7. Save one of those dates, and watch this website for further information.

Now if all of this has you interested in singing with the chorale, I have good news! There is still time for you to audition! We are auditioning for all voice parts, and are especially interested in hearing basses and tenors. Auditions will be held August 13 and 20. More information on the main page of this website. Don't be shy! If you've had a bit of singing experience (high school, college, church choirs), you may be just who we're looking for!

Aren't you feeling cooler already?
