A new chorus is starting in JP.
Consonance Chorale is an SATB (4-part) choral opportunity for men, women, and teens (17 and up), dedicated to bringing people together to make energetic, community music. Rehearsals will be monthly, and incorporate vocal technique and instruction into the choral rehearsal setting.
No music reading is necessary, just a commitment to attend rehearsals, and work towards a community performance in February of 2013.
Musical genres include choral music from the Republic of Georgia, South Africa, American shape note traditions, Russian folk songs, songs from Hebrew traditions as well as contemporary compositions.
Consonance Chorale is an umbrella project of the Consonance Choral Residency Project. (http://www.consonancechoral.net/)
