New Women’s Chorale
The Oratorio Chorale is pleased to launch a new women’s chorus of 16-32 singers. In addition to exploring the wonderful SSAA repertoire in the choral canon, this ensemble will focus on vocal technique, musicianship skills, and building community. Rehearsals will take place at the Episcopal Church of St. Mary in Falmouth on Wednesday evenings. The women’s chorus will take part in Sing We Noël on December 18 and 19 and will perform a full concert, “Music by Women: Celebrating Female Composers” on April 9 and 10.
To indicate your interest and request an audition, please fill out the Women’s Chorale Sign-Up Form. We will contact you soon to schedule an appointment.
Singer Salon Series
In the dark months of winter, Oratorio Chorale will host “Singer Salons,” sight-reading parties open to all members of the community. Each salon is hosted in a singer’s home, and attendees are asked to bring a beverage or appetizer to share. Emily Isaacson, Oratorio Chorale artistic director, will provide scores for an hour of festive and non-threatening sight-singing. Salons are scheduled for Saturday afternoons, January 30, February 20, and March 19.
To indicate your interest, please fill out the Singer Salon Sign-Up Form. You will receive e-mail confirmation of your response and another e-mail reminder in January.
