An Update from

The Community Chorus of Detroit

All of us in the Community Chorus of Detroit are eager to resume regular rehearsals, concert production, and international performance touring, and we cordially invite you to join us in the chorus as soon as the CDC gives the go-ahead for choirs to resume in-person singing!  Check here later this fall for up-to-the-minute info on the Community Chorus of Detroit – Metro Detroit’s world-renowned, non-auditioned chorus.

Our CCD Board has been busy laying the groundwork for the chorus’s exciting next steps.  During the months of the Covid shut-down, the CCD produced three well-received virtual mini-concerts.  (View the virtual programs via “About Us,” then “Audio/Video” and tour photos via “Gallery,” 2015, 2017, 2019)  Additionally, our Board President wrote an extensive script for a professional copyrighted podcast produced by Encore Tours in Boston for their national audience.  The podcast included an original musical score composed for the production, as well as professional narrators.  (View the script via “About Us,” then “The Story of the CCD.”)  The chorus is currently holding several outdoor, in-person “Sunday Sings” – just-for-fun, fall 2021 gatherings of our choristers and guests to enjoy singing familiar choral music. We are hopeful that we’ll be able to begin in-person rehearsals in January/February of 2022 – if CDC health safety guidelines permit – in preparation for a large-scale production of the Brahms Ein Deutsches Requiem for chorus, orchestra, and soloists in May, 2022.  Additionally, we are planning for our next international performance tour, to northern Italy in fall 2023, for which we’ll begin registering singers as soon as we can safely begin rehearsals.  In the meantime, we are planning for a cultural tour (not a performance tour) of Germany in fall, 2022, which will include Oktoberfest in Berlin, a private tour of a famous piano factory, a private cooking class of German fare, Bach concerts and numerous others, and many behind-the-scenes experiences not usually available to tourists. The German tour will be limited to ~25 participants.  We hope you will be with us to celebrate a return to the joy of singing together in the heart of Detroit – and our international tours!
