Description

We continue our musical journey each year, featuring seasonal music in our Dec. concert, show tunes and cabaret for our March silent auction and our classically based program in May. We have also sung in special performances at the Church of the Presidents, The Neighborhood Club, and even a few weddings. Some of our large musical repertoire includes: Bach Mass in B minor, Beethoven Missa Solemnis, Brahms A German Requiem, Dvorak Te Deum, Handel Messiah and Coronation Anthems, Haydn The Creation, Mendelssohn Elijah, Mozart Requiem and Coronation Mass, Schubert Mass in A flat and Vivaldi Gloria. The chorus has also performed major works by contemporary composers Britten, Bush and Rutter, as well as spirituals and show tunes. A smaller touring group has gone to Europe eight times. Concerts have been performed in England, Wales, Scotland, France, Austria, Germany, Switzerland, Italy, Finland, Sweden, Russia and the Czech Republic. Overseas tours take place every other summer. The members of our chorus consider ourselves a group of dedicated non-professional musicians who strive to create quality music in a warm and friendly atmosphere. It is a social as well as musical endeavor for us all. We consider ourselves to be a "musical family", as stated in what has evolved as our signature song, "Uma Familia" (One Big Family-One People). We are always interested in new singers: our men's sections (tenor, bass) are usually smaller and in more need of new members. Previous choral experience is a plus but not a must!
