Spring Season 2022 – Come sing with us!
The Chorale will begin rehearsing on January 11, 2022 for our spring concert, entitled Only All of Us. The May 14, 2022 concert celebrates resilience and heroes and the discovery of the strength that lies within us as individuals and as communities. Presented at the Anne S. Richardson Auditorium, accompanied by an orchestra of incredible musicians, this multi-media “choral musical” will take us through a time that challenged not only a few, but all of us. Tied together with original dialogue and a thread of contemporary, familiar songs, this show will be the first collaboration of Artistic Director Daniela Sikora and Stage Director Carol Mark. Please join us for this memorable event. All singers must be fully vaccinated including booster shot if eligible. Masks are required for rehearsals and seating is socially distanced.
