Civic Chorale Seeks Voices


The Calhoun County Civic Chorale is warming up for its 2015-2016 season and is looking for new singers to round out the ensemble. The first rehearsal is August 31, 7:15 p.m., at the Mason Hall performance center at Jacksonville State University and interested singers are invited to come learn more about the group. 

The chorale welcomes singers who have voices that can blend well with others, are able to learn their individual vocal part from written music, and enjoy singing classical choral masterworks.

The chorale is preparing for its winter concert, set for Dec. 6 at First United Methodist Church in Anniston. The featured works will be Camille Saint-Saëns’ “Christmas Oratorio” and Mozart’s “Regina Coeli,” along with other smaller arrangements.

The Calhoun County Civic Chorale is one of five choral ensembles sponsored by JSU’s David L. Walters Department of Music. It is comprised of members of the community and JSU students and faculty and is under the direction of Dr. Patricia Corbin, JSU director of choral activities, and is accompanied by pianist Dr. Lornalee Curtis.
