- CCD Touring Choir
The CCD is Detroit’s premiere non-auditioned concert choir. We welcome beginning to advanced singers from throughout Metro Detroit. Basic music reading is required, and many choristers are experienced singers. Rehearsals are held on Sunday afternoons from 1:30 – 4:00 pm and take place at the beautiful Jefferson Avenue Presbyterian Church in Detroit’s historic Indian Village neighborhood. Secure parking.
Please join us for our Spring semester, featuring works from some of our favorite contemporary choral composers, including Morten Lauridsen, John Rutter, Randall Thompson, Eric Whitacre, Stacey Gibbs, and Kurt Bestor. These works will be interspersed between Mozart’s breathtaking Versperae solennes de confessore (Solemn Vespers for a Confessor). Our first three rehearsals are open to new singers without obligation to join. We hope you’ll join us!
Updated COVID masking policy: For the chorus – in both rehearsals and concerts – and for the concert audiences, the CCD masking policy for spring, 2023 is to have masks optional.
Proviso: The board reserves the right to change to a masks-required policy if there is a change in the spread of the Covid virus as indicated by the CDC and/or if such a policy change is deemed necessary at any time by a majority vote of the board. The board will re-evaluate the policy after the chorus’ May, 2023 concerts and in the interim, as it sees fit.
Our work is supported by the MICHIGAN ARTS & CULTURE COUNCIL and the NATIONAL ENDOWMENT FOR THE ARTS.
