A cordial invitation from

The Community Chorus of Detroit

Join us for exciting summer events and beyond!

With our acclaimed 2017-18 season completed, we are looking forward to fabulous upcoming events. For all dates, watch for more info soon, as plans are finalized.

Online registration begins for our 2018-19 season on July 30. Dues are $50 each for our fall and spring semesters, or $80 for both semesters if paid in full at the time of fall registration.  Payment may be made on Paypal here or via Register on our site or – for those on Chorus Connection – via that option.

On Saturday, August 18, our Artistic Director and Conductor – Dr. Edward Maki-Schramm – will conduct a community sing at Christ Church Detroit, with the ad hoc chorus performing excerpts from Handel’s Messiah, along with two fabulous guest artists: Kevin Bylsma, organ and Carol Ambrogio-Wood, soprano. All are welcome, and we’ll have an ice cream social following the community sing as well as information for prospective new CCD choristers. Times: 6:00 (or before) arrive and rehearse; 7:00 performance; 8:00 ice cream social.  Please bring your own score or you may rent one for the evening for $5.  Bonus: Take advantage of our $10 CCD registration discount – offered at this event only.

On Sunday, August 26, each registered CCD member and a guest are invited for a day of chorus fun and fellowship to watch the Detroit hydroplane races at a private residence on the Detroit River. With beautiful gardens and abundant space for guests, the residence is located on the shore near the finish line, and you’ll see the 60-foot high, 300-foot-long walls of water – the soaring “roostertails” – up close as the hydroplanes roar by!  This is a free event for CCD members only, and a pizza-buffet lunch is provided.  Info will be sent to all those registered by 8/21.  Register now so you don’t miss out!

Our CCD fall rehearsals begin on September 9, and our first two rehearsals (9/9 and 9/16) are open-houses; we invite prospective members to visit, with no obligation.  We rehearse and perform at Jefferson Avenue Presbyterian Church, 8625 E. Jefferson Ave. in Detroit’s historic Indian Village neighborhood.  See Chorus Handbook and Register for complete info.

We hope you will join us for our third international tour, this time to southern Spain and Portugal, for 11 days in early October, 2019, including Madrid, Seville, Granada, and Lisbon, as well as stops in the picturesque countryside of the Iberian Peninsula, with ancient whitewashed villages overflowing with flowers.  Along with concerts at magnificent cathedrals and other gorgeous venues, we’ll enjoy visits to museums, palaces, and historic sites, as well as a Portugese cooking class, a flemenco performance, a tapas adventure, and much more.  The tour is open to CCD choristers and companions, non-CCD singers, and non-singing friends. Please contact us if you are interested in being on our CCD Touring Choir email list.  Registration will begin on July 30 via Touring Choir on our site.  Our other tours filled quickly, so register ASAP!
