Description

The Greenwich Choral Society is a not-for-profit, member-based organization dedicated to excellence in choral music. The membership is drawn from the Counties of Fairfield, New Haven and Westchester, and New York City. Under the first music director, Donald Pirnie, concerts were given at Greenwich High School and Greenwich Academy. Recently, led by conductors Richard Vogt and then Paul F. Mueller, Music Director since 1996, performance venues have included Stamford's Palace Theater, the Norwalk Concert Hall, and Manhattan's Carnegie Hall and St. Patrick's Cathedral. And every other year, members of GCS travel to the capitals of Europe to entertain. We vary by age, from teens and young 20's to seniors in their 70's; by race and religion; by nationality and background; by economic strata; by height and weight; by years with GCS...from newcomers to over 40-years; by skill level...from excellent sight readers to those just learning the discipline, from solo-quality voices to pleasant tones that blend well; and by experience...from those who have made music a life and livelihood to those who last sang in a college glee club. But we all have some things in common: * a great desire to sing... * to sing better... * to be challenged musically... * to sing with other good voices... * and to enjoy the thrill of entertaining. We work hard. We commit to over 50 rehearsals and at least six performances per season. We pay reasonable dues and music fees. While we audition every two years; we must maintain consistent vocal quality and learning skills throughout the period.
