CHORUS NEWS


A cordial invitation from

The Community Chorus of Detroit

 Detroit’s renowned non-auditioned chorus

 LOVE TO SING?

 Please join us for our fabulous 2015-16 season!

Visit Membership for complete participation information and registration.

Our December concerts will feature a spectacular, new production of Handel’s Messiah, with chorus, chamber choir, orchestra, and University of Michigan soloists. While Messiah will be performed as written, we will simultaneously cross the Atlantic both historically and musically to the contemporaneous slave culture in the United States, by incorporating several text-related spirituals between selected Messiah movements, to lift up and bring to light the universal message of these two great musical genres, weaving together their common threads in a rich, deeply meaningful holiday presentation.

 Our May concerts will feature a powerful, moving new work, Street Requiem, commemorating those who struggle anonymously on the streets. An NPR link for background info: One Night Only: The Streets Meet The Opera House.

Rehearsals and most concerts are at Jefferson Avenue Presbyterian Church, 8625 E. Jefferson Ave. at Burns in historic Indian Village, Detroit 48214.  Our first two rehearsals of the season, on 9/13 & 20, are open rehearsals, when we welcome prospective members to visit, without obligation.  If you’d like to visit, please let us know you’ll be there: info@communitychorusofdetroit.com.  All are welcome!
