Inviting all vocalists who love to participate in singing rich vocal harmonies, beautiful melodies, and jazzy rhythmic beats to come and join in this year’s musical adventure.  This Fall, our 10 weeks together will be spent learning songs we will perform in December and because of the timing and opportunity we have to sing about God to a more receptive audience (during the Christmas season), our core selections include: a 2- part arrangement of “Believe” from Polar Express, 3-part (SAB) arrangements of “Breath of Heaven” (Mary’s Song) and “How Like A Winter” (text from Shakespeare’s Sonnet 97), and a 4-part arrangement of “A Pentatonix Christmas Medley” which includes Hark! The Herald Angels Sing, God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen, Coventry Carol, and O Come, All Ye Faithful.  If we find that the learning is going very well and everyone feels as if they can undertake one or two more songs, then other considerations may include “When You Believe” (Prince of Egypt), “Baba Yatu” (from the video game Civilization IV), or “Rather Be”, just to name a few possibilities.

Our performance opportunities will take place on Saturday, December 8 with 3 possible locations – more information once each venue is confirmed.  We are looking at one in the morning, a performance with lunch provided at Chick-fil-A East, and a possible afternoon performance in the Rotunda in the State Capitol building.  Our final performance will be Friday evening, December 14 at the Mid-Winter FLAME Art/Drama/Concert Chorale performance.

Concert Chorale attire is:

White Shirts: Men – long-sleeved button-down, collared for a tie, we will discuss ties.   Women – long-sleeved blouse or button-down shirt, modest necklines, please- no off-the-shoulder, skin-tight, or see-through. Camies underneath are absolutely appropriate!

Black slacks men and women (some long black skirts are acceptable for the women who would rather wear a long floor-length skirt). 

Black dress shoes for all – the goal is to look as classy as we will sound!
