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 23. 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.

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. All are welcome, and we’ll have a pizza buffet and information for prospective new CCD choristers following the community sing. 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 lunch is provided.  Register for the chorus beforehand, 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, so 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.

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 other historic sites, as well as a Portugese cooking class, a flemenco performance, 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 in the next few weeks.  Our other tours filled quickly, so register ASAP!

All of us in the Community Chorus of Detroit thank you – our supporters – for all you do to help us to continue “Singing in the Heart of Detroit!”
