Choir Matrix is a community women's vocal ensemble sponsored by Consonare Choral Community that is devoted to building community among all women and empowering women in Mansfield and surrounding communities through singing.
Choir Matrix approaches quality choral music, including the promotion of female
composers, within an engaging, accepting, and encouraging environment focused on healthy vocal technique and refinement of musical skills.
This choir is non-auditioned and open to all self-identified women and we encourage
women with children to join us as we have a tandem youth choral program
(Consonare Youth Choirs) that rehearses at the same time and location.
In order to promote inclusion, we...
offer choral opportunities where all singers are welcome and no audition is necessary
strive to offer participation in these community choral programs at a low cost*
provide additional music learning resources and offer extra rehearsals for new singers
divide our choral season into short sessions with the intention of allowing those
singers with busy schedules the opportunity to participate
Singers can participate in one or all of the sessions in any given choral season (September through
June). Once you become a member of the Choir Matrix community, you will always be welcome to
return if you miss a session. Please see our FAQ sheet for more information.
During this time of social isolation, we have been offering the following opportunities for our Choir Matrix singers:
Virtual Matrix - A special online choral singing session through Zoom where we can keep our singing and spirits up. This session is FREE and all Choir Matrix singers past/present/future are welcome to join.
Warm-up Wednesdays - All singers are welcome to join our online vocal warm-up sessions at 10am every Wednesday. These sessions are FREE and an opportunity to practice and explore vocal technique.
Please stay tuned for our information the 2020-21 Season!
* There is a small tuition fee ($25) per singer each session to participate. if you cannot afford the cost to participate, please contact Sarah at email@example.com to discuss a fee waiver.
