One of the most wonderful things about choirs is the community... the togetherness. We unite our voices, our minds, and our hearts in song.
Cue pandemic. Curtains on in-person singing and performances.
This year, my colleagues and I at the Children’s Chorus of Carroll County have run a fully virtual choral season for our students. Nothing about this choral year was “normal.”
But what is a more powerful beacon of hope than singing into silence? Than carrying a candle in the dark?
We need music. And, we need each other.
Our chorus community is so excited to be resuming in-person rehearsals starting next season.
But, before that, we invite everyone to join us on Sunday, May 2nd, at 3:00 pm Eastern Time for the premiere of our 2021 Virtual Spring Concert! Here's your invitation:
A celebration of music, this concert features all four of our performing choirs. You’ll enjoy folk song arrangements from several different cultures as well as songs about the joys of music-making and the power of community.
It will be fun to experience the premiere together, even while we’re apart. During the premiere, I and the other conductors will host a Live Chat so performers and audience members can interact in real time.
