Greater New Haven Community Chorus, a non-auditioned, four part (SATB) chorus, is currently inviting singers to join GNHCC for the 2017-2018 season. Prospective singers are invited to join us as we prepare for our December 2017 concert, “From Skies Above,” a holiday choral celebration featuring Mendelssohn’s Vom Himmel hoch, selections from Randall Thompson’s Frostiana, and works by Bach, Gjielo, and others. Rehearsals will begin on Thursday, September 7th.
No audition is required. Singers of all experience levels are welcome.
Interested singers are invited to attend up to three rehearsals as guests before committing to join the chorus. This trial period provides an opportunity to meet the chorus members and Artistic Director, Noah Blocker-Glynn; to sample the upcoming repertoire, and experience the spirit and welcoming community of GNHCC. The open enrollment period for the upcoming Fall semester runs from September 7th through September 21st. Prospective singers may visit any rehearsal during this period. Rehearsals are held every Thursday evening from 7:00 to 9:00 PM at First Presbyterian Church, 704 Whitney Avenue, New Haven. Additional details about chorus membership, registration fees, and the history of Greater New Haven Community Chorus can be found at www.gnhcc.org.
To fulfill our mission of achieving the highest possible standard of choral music performed by a non-auditioned chorus, singers should attend all weekly rehearsals and are encouraged to actively participate in the organization by sharing their individual skills and talents with the various GNHCC committees.
Greater New Haven Community Chorus – 80-100 voices strong – draws its membership from throughout the greater New Haven area. GNHCC strives to embrace the wide diversity of the community and is committed to making quality music accessible and approachable for audiences and members alike. Greater New Haven Community Chorus was founded in 1963 as a venture in community singing and continues to perform with pride and distinction.
