Winter chorus rehearsals begin for Sullivan County Community Chorus
LIBERTY, NY — The Sullivan County Community Chorus will resume weekly Thursday evening rehearsals on Thursday, September 6 from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. in the orchestra room of the Liberty Middle School, 145 Buckley St. The chorus, under the direction of Kevin Giroux with accompanist Keira Weyant, will perform its 42nd annual Winter Concert on Sunday, December 9 at 2:30 p.m. in the Immaculate Conception Church, Woodbourne.
The title will be “The Reflective Genius of Mozart,” including Mozart’s Coronation Mass, selections from the Requiem and other masterpieces.
The chorus welcomes all interested singers to attend their rehearsals. An ability to match pitch is essential and it is helpful if singers can read music. Prospective new members are encouraged to attend the first three rehearsals (September 6, 13 and 20) and have dues waived for those rehearsals with no obligation. Rehearsals are open to all voice parts. Each prospective new member is required to meet with Giroux on September 6 beginning at 5:30 p.m. for a short series of vocal warm-ups designed to determine vocal range for placement in the appropriate section of the chorus, as well as to ensure an ability to match pitch.
Dues are $20 with a $15 music deposit (new members only) and $10 one-time folder deposit. Those wishing to sing in the Winter Concert are encouraged to arrive for their first rehearsal at 6 p.m. to sign in and receive packets of the concert music.
