Greenwich Choral Society Announces an Open “Vivaldi Sing”
And Auditions for Prospective Members
The Greenwich Choral Society is launching its 2016-2017 season with an informal community sing-along of Vivaldi’s GLORIA on Tuesday, September 13th, 7:15 PM, at First Congregational Church of Old Greenwich. A reception will follow the event. (Directions to the Daniels Center at First Congregational Church of Old Greenwich, 108 Sound Beach Ave. can be found at www.fccog.org)
The Vivaldi Sing is open to accomplished singers, people who enjoy singing and anyone who might like to try. Absolutely no experience is necessary. The audience will be the choir!
This event will be an opportunity for anyone considering joining the Greenwich Choral Society to get a firsthand look at how we operate. Current members of GCS are looking forward to “tuning up their voices” at the Vivaldi Sing and it is hoped that non-GCS members who attend the event will hear the Vivaldi and be enticed to join the choral society in order to perform it in concert with the Stamford Symphony Orchestra in March.
The event will be conducted by Paul F. Mueller, Music Director of the Greenwich Choral Society, who will provide insights into the history of the composer and the work. A preview of the Greenwich Choral Society’s 2016-2017 season will be presented, and a relaxed, informal environment will prevail. Music will be available at the door at no charge.
An appointment to audition for regular membership in the
Choral Society can be arranged before or after the Vivaldi Sing. Open auditions will be held on Tuesday, September 6
and Wednesday, September 14 starting at 6 PM, as well as on Saturday, September
10 and 17 starting at 10 AM. Singers are needed for all voice parts,
