A cordial invitation from

The Community Chorus of Detroit

 

Please join us for…

…our fabulous spring 2014 semester!  The CCD is an independent, non-auditioned chorus, and we’d love to have you sing with us. Our spring concert repertoire, entitled “Critical Mass,” features two complete, contrasting mass settings: the exquisite, elegant Messe Solennelle by Louis Vierne and the house-rocking Gospel Mass by Robert Ray.  Linking these two great works in our concert will be a number of pieces that include the sumptuous Rachmaninoff Vocalise and two exciting Moses Hogan arrangements of spirituals, along with other extraordinary music.  There will also be opportunities for chamber-ensemble singing, for those who would like an additional challenge.  For complete participation information, including rehearsal/concert dates and times, venue info, and more please click on Chorus Handbook.  To register and make a dues payment, please click on Register.  Rehearsals begin February 15.

…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 cultural 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.
