A cordial invitation from

The Community Chorus of Detroit

 

Please join us for Detroit Sings: A Choral Music Conference

Saturday, July 11, 2015

Jefferson Avenue Presbyterian Church, 8625 E. Jefferson Ave. at Burns in Detroit’s historic Indian Village

We offer this major conference to provide an opportunity for members of the choral music community in our region to network, to learn, to be inspired by new ideas, and to celebrate the art of choral music. 

Maestro Leonard Slatkin, conductor of the Detroit Symphony Orchestra, and Dr. Jason Harris, immediate past Director of Choral Ensembles at Oberlin College and Conservatory, will be our featured speakers.  The event will be a showcase for regional choral music artists, with premier choral conductors and musicians from throughout SE Michigan offering ~25 presentations, and with attendees representing a wide variety of choirs, including university, church, community-based, and professional ensembles.  We hope you will be there!

The conference program and registration information will be announced here in mid-June.

And…please join us for our European tour in October, 2015!  We cordially invite you and your companions – singing or non-singing, wherever you may live – to join us on tour, as Detroit’s Musical Ambassadors to the World!  Non-chorus guests who are singers are welcome to sing in our CCD touring choir.  Our travels will focus on northern France, with recitals and concerts at the Cathedrals of Notre Dame in both Paris and Chartres, the Bayeux Cathedral, the American Cemetery on the Normandy beaches – where we will lay a wreath at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier – and many other venues that are among the most magnificent, moving, and historically significant in the world. For complete information about the tour, including detailed itinerary, price, and registration information, please click here.  Registration is the same for both singing and non-singing participants.
