Central Chamber Chorale to hold auditions
For the City Times
MARSHFIELD – Prospective members are invited to audition for Central Chamber Chorale, a Central Wisconsin group for singing and performing.
The Chorale seeks members who are “able to sing, blend their voices into that of the group, follow directions, attend rehearsals faithfully, and be able to read music.”
The Chorale is in need of tenors and basses. The group is open to all area adults, as well as high school students, with appropriate musical and vocal skills. Membership is subject to a “singer friendly” audition.
This fall’s concert will feature Benjamin Britten’s “Ceremony of Carols” and pieces composed by Dan Forrest, Eric Whitacre, and Morten Lauridsen.
The Chorale performs three free concerts Nov. 15-17 and in March at three different sites. The two regular concert sites are Wisconsin Rapids and Marshfield with an additional site rotated between Abbotsford and Medford.
Rehearsals for the November Concert Series begin on Sept. 3, at 7 p.m., in the Choir Room on the UWSP at Marshfield campus.
The Chorale’s music director is Dr. Richard Brunson, music director for UWSP at Marshfield.
