Committed to excellence in all we do, we are Detroit’s renowned non-auditioned chorus. If you’d like to visit to see if we might be the chorus for you, or if you’re a CCD alum eager to sing again, we invite you to attend our no-obligation, free-of-charge, open-house rehearsals on Sunday, February 18 and 25, when you’ll be able to visit with us, meet our conductor and choristers, and find out more about our upcoming program. Please take a look at our Chorus Handbook for complete info, including dates, times, and venue. We cordially invite you to sing with us! Be sure to save the dates for our spring concerts, May 18 and 19, 2018.
The title of our May concerts is The Hope of Loving, after the title of one of the works we’ll sing. The theme invites reflection on the range of human emotion, from despair to “the hope of loving” – finding hope and meaning in our lives through the beauty of nature, music, faith, and, most of all, the many ways we love – and are loved by – others. Composers of our spring repertoire include Jake Runestad, Kim André Arnesen, and Craig Hella Johnson, among many greats. Musical highlights include an arrangement by our conductor, Dr. Edward Maki-Schramm, and a world premiere of “Shadows Will Fall,” by the brilliant contemporary composer Daniel Elder, commissioned for the Community Chorus of Detroit as a gift from Ed in celebration of his fifth year as our CCD Artistic Director and Conductor. The music is among the most beautiful, meaningful, moving, and powerful of our time, making for an extraordinary, inspiring concert program.
