Winter chorus rehearsals begin
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 new singers. An ability to match pitch is essential, and the ability to read music is helpful. Prospective members are encouraged to attend rehearsals during September and will have dues waived for those rehearsals with no obligation. At their first rehearsal, they are required to meet with conductor Giroux beginning at 5:30 p.m. to 6:15 p.m. for a short series of vocal warm-ups designed to determine vocal range for placement in the appropriate section of the chorus.
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.
