Founded in 1946, the 110-voice Concord Chorus performs several concerts of choral-orchestral and smaller works each season. Auditions for all voice parts will be held during two open rehearsals on Mondays, September 10 and 17, 2018, from 7:30 to 10 PM at Trinity Episcopal Church’s Parish Hall (81 Elm Street) in Concord, Massachusetts. The audition consists of scales, ear and pitch memory exercises, and sight-reading in order to evaluate voice, ear, and reading abilities. A prepared piece is not required, but prior musical experience is expected.
The repertory of the Concord Chorus encompasses music from the 16th century to the present. This season’s concerts include Fauré’s Requiem with professional soloists and orchestra and music of Mendelssohn, Lauridsen, Thompson, Barber, Hawley, and Dello Joio.
Rehearsals are held on Monday evenings from 7:30 to 10 PM and begin September 10, 2018. The Winter Holiday Concerts will be Saturday, December 8, 2018; and the Fauré concert will be Saturday, June 1, 2019.
The Concord Chorus is a wonderful group of welcoming people who enjoy singing and learning excellent choral repertoire and performing at the highest level. Under the leadership of its Music Director, Kevin Leong, the Concord Chorus invites you to share in a musical experience that will be fun and fulfilling.
