Sunday, June 10, 2018, “Kindness Mural” unveiling, 10 Governor Street
The Ridgefield Chorale has been invited to perform on Sunday, June 10th at 1 pm in the unveiling of the “Kindness Mural”. The Ridgefield Youth Commission coordinated the creation of the mural, which was inspired by the Chorale’s “Being Human Being Kind” initiative. The RYC has been working for a year to create this mural for the Ridgefield community. The abstract mural serves as a visible reminder for inclusiveness and kindness here in town. Joanne and Bruce Hunter, who own the Art Spot in Danbury, were commissioned for the project. They worked with dozens of members of the Ridgefield community in March to create the mural. The mural will be placed outside Ridgefield’s teen center at 10 Governor Street, Ridgefield, CT.
Tuesday June 19, 2018, “Summer Sing”, 7:00 – 9:30 pm, Veterans Park (8 Governor Street, Ridgefield)
The Ridgefield Chorale will be holding 3 “Summer Sings” for Chorale members and other singers interested in learning more about the Chorale.
Each Summer Sing will focus on a different style of repertoire and will be led by Chorale Artistic Director, Daniela Sikora. The first 40 minutes of each Summer Sing will include work on choral/vocal/performance skills and then after a 5 minute break we will work on various styles of music, including one piece from our upcoming Fall concert repertoire and one piece from our 2018 Holiday concert repertoire. The style of repertoire for our first Summer Sing on June 19th will include folk songs and madrigals. Singers are asked to cover the cost of sheet music used at the Summer Sings.
The June 19th Summer Sing will be 7:00 – 9:30 pm at Veterans Park Elementary School (8 Governor Street, Ridgefield) in the auditorium. Upcoming Summer Sings are July 17th and July 31st, those locations are TBD. If you are interested in joining us, please email email@example.com to let us know.
