Calhoun County Civic Chorale Begins Rehearsals; New Members Welcomed



On Monday, September 11, at 7:15 p.m. in the Performance Center of Mason Hall at Jacksonville State University, the Calhoun County Civic Chorale will begin rehearsals for its fall season.


This season the Chorale will perform The Mozart Vesperae Solennes and Cantata 147 by J.S. Bach.


The Chorale consists of area community members as well as JSU students and faculty, under the direction of Dr. Patricia Corbin, director of choral activities.


The September 11th rehearsal is a "New Member Open House." Community members may come and participate in the rehearsal to see what the Chorale is like without further obligation. Participating singers should have voices that are able to blend with others and should have some experience reading music.


The Calhoun County Civic Chorale is one of five choral ensembles of the Dr. David L. Walters Department of Music. Each season the Chorale performs a major choral work, often with orchestra. Some of their past repertoire includes Handel's Messiah, The Seven Last Words of Christ by Dubois, The Christmas Oratorio, by Camille Saint-Saens, the Fauré Requiem, the Duruflé Requiem, Mozart's Coronation Mass, and Benjamin Britten's Ceremony of Carols.


In the spring the Chorale will combine forces with A Cappella Choir to perform Brahms' German Requiem. For further information about the Chorale or any other JSU choral ensemble, please contact Dr. Corbin in the Choral Activities office, (256) 782-5544.
