WE WILL RAISE OUR VOICES AGAIN ... 


It is with sadness but inescapable realism that we have cancelled our May 17 performance of Brahms Requiem at Christ & St. Stephen's Church.  We hope to bring you this magnificent work at a later date, as well as many other joyful concerts filled with offerings from a variety of celebrated composers. Watch for updates on this website and our Facebook page.

We wanted to share with you some thoughts from Director Martin Rutishauser to our choir members:

Dear Chorus,
I miss you all!  I miss the warmth and community of our Wednesday night rehearsals.  I miss the energy in our gathering together. I miss the hard work that we do as a group.  I miss the soul enriching music that grows out of that work. These are all things that I look forward to at our very first rehearsal once the threat of this horrid virus has lifted.  It’s music that is lightening the burden of isolation for me, and I can think of no better way to affirm life than to sing our way back into it
In the meantime, all of us on the chorus board wish you health and safety during these trying times.  Even though we have suspended rehearsals for now, your faces and personalities are a constant and reassuring presence to me as I go through my day.  I look forward to seeing, greeting, and hearing each and every one of you the first chance we have.
With all fondness,

When we are all able to sing together again, rehearsals will resume on Wednesdays at 7:45 pm at The Collegiate School at 301 Freedom Place South.   We always welcome new members of all voice types (soprano, alto, tenor, baritone/bass) to join our community choir.  No audition is required. See our About page for more information.

In the meantime, may you and your loved ones stay well.
