Consonare Community Choir is a new, special singing opportunity we are sponsoring for ALL singers in the community to sing a choral masterwork together. Even those with busy schedules will have the opportunity to participate. Starting in January 2020, we will be collaborating with the Willimantic Orchestra, also a community organization, to present a collaborative, community performance on May 9, 2020 at the Concert Hall at Eastern Connecticut State University. This opportunity is available to all singers in the community (Soprano, Alto, Tenor, and Bass). The goal is the bring the community together in song and to bridge the arts through connecting two community music programs.
Have you ever wanted to sing a large choral work with an orchestra? Do you have the dream of singing in a state-of-the-art performance venue? Do you enjoy singing with others but do not have availability for regular rehearsals? Then, this special event is the perfect opportunity for you!
Information Session and First Rehearsal:
Sunday, January 19th from 3:00-4:30pm at Storrs Congregational Church (SCC)
Information Session and Rehearsal:

Scores and resources will be provided to all singers to aid learning and practicing the music in between rehearsals. If you cannot attend the first rehearsal, you can still participate by advising the choir director (Sarah Kaufold) when you register. Attending all rehearsals is not required, but an available opportunity.
In order to promote inclusion in our choral programs, 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 to ensure that everyone is successful
