Come join the Chorus!

Categories: Midd Blogosphere

It’s well-known that music and singing have great, positive effects on mind and body, so we hope you’ll consider joining fellow staff, faculty, and students, and residents from Addison County, as part of the College Community Chorus.  Rehearsals for our spring program begin in J-term, as we prepare an exciting program for performance with the Champlain Philharmonic, including a newly arranged work by professor Peter Hamlin with texts by Julia Alvarez, Jay Parini, Robert Pack, Langston Hughes; selections from Gilbert & Sullivan’s HMS Pinafore; works by Verdi including the famous Anvil Chorus; and Aaron Copland’s inspiring The Promise of Living.

No audition needed. Just stop by to sign out a folder and start to join in the song!  J-term is a great time to explore the world of music!

Sun, 1/12  (7-8:30, Mead Chapel); Tue, 1/14 (7-8:30, Mead).
Sun, 1/19 (7-8:30, Mead); Tue, 1/21 (7-8:30, MCA CH)
Sun, 1/26 (7-8:30, Mead)

College Community Chorus welcomes you!

Categories: Midd Blogosphere

“I’m so happy to be a part of community chorus — it makes Sundays and Tuesdays bright spots in my week.”

All are welcome to join colleagues, students and community members and to have an enjoyable time making music in the community in the College Community Chorus!

This fall we blend together a mix of musical styles, with classical pieces by Mendelssohn and Brahms alongside a gospel setting of This Little Light of Mine (in honor of MLK’s “I have a dream” speech), and award-winning composer Morten Lauridsen’s amazing work Lux Aeterna — a work when premiered just sixteen years ago showed that contemporary music can “speak directly to the heart.”

Our 90-member chorus welcomes all who love to explore music — join us for an engaging hour and half on Sunday or Tuesday evenings in Mead Chapel, 7-8:30 p.m. as we prepare for our annual Thanksgiving concert, slated for Sunday, Nov. 24.

Contact conductor Jeff Rehbach (rehbach@middlebury.edu) with any questions!

College Community Chorus Open to All

Categories: Midd Blogosphere

The Middlebury College Community Chorus begins a brand new season with rehearsals at 7 p.m. in Mead Chapel this coming week. Join us on Tuesday, September 11, or Sunday, September 16. If you enjoy singing, and especially enjoy singing in harmony with others, consider joining students, staff, faculty, alumni, and community members. Rehearsals offer insights to music, a break from the pressures of the week, smiles and good cheer. This fall’s Thanksgiving program includes a mix of delightful classical music by Schubert, soaring contemporary settings by Randall Thompson, Rene Clausen, and Ola Gjeilo, and a brand new upbeat choral arrangement of Carly Simon’s Let the River Run.
