This Past Year

Has been a long one.  It started in August of 2013 and ended May 10 of 2014.  We had a delightful time in the White Lake area doing clinics for singers and performing great sacred choruses with about fifty singers from all over the West Michigan area.  It was truly a treat to do the concert in the Montague Public Schools Performing Arts Center.  What a treasure that venue is.  Congratulations to the Montague Board of Education for conceiving  it and the community for supporting it.  Our annual Wreath of Carols found the Embellish Handbell Choir of Grand Rapids joining us.  What a treat they provided to the capacity crowd.  Stephen Foster comprised the whole of the March program.  We thought most of the pieces were Foster's standards and were surprised when some of the younger audience said that they had never heard two or three of them.  This made it worth doing.  The recently completed Choral Grab Bag was flat out fun for us.  We revisited music that had lain dormant in the library for a long time.  In truth, this concert was as much for us as it was the hearers.  Thanks to all of you for your support in 2013-2014.  We will see you at the Frauenthal on November 21.

What people say

Coming Up

2014-2015 will be the Chamber Choir's fiftieth season.  It has been a long journey, and like any journey, has had some rough patches.  But over the years it has remained a work of affection and good cheer for all concerned.  After the performance with the Symphony in November, the choir will launch into an exploration of music written after its founding, 1964.  The date and venue for this concert are not set as of this writing, but most of the repertoire is, including music of Eric Whitacre, Kirke Mechem, Lloyd Pfautsch, and Ola Gjeilo, to name a few.  Stay tuned.
