We are so very excited to be singing together this 2021-2022 season, with COVID in mind we will be … Join Us about Sing with Us
Welcome to Aurora Chorus, we are so excited to be singing together once again. The overarching goal is to bring us together safely for both singing and for community. What we heard is important to Aurora is:
Being together in community
Continuing to support musical excellence
Learning and actively engaging in work on diversity, equity, inclusion and belonging
We are currently seeking a dynamic leader with solid choral directing experience to grow this legacy and to further enliven Aurora’s mission. More information here.
For the Fall term, we will have four month-long mini-sessions where we meet two Thursday evenings and one Saturday.
September – Kathleen Hollingsworth – Thursdays 9/9, 9/23 & Saturday 9/25
October – Margaret Green – Thursdays 10/7,10/21 & Saturday 10/30 (Dates subject to change due to location availability)
November – Betty Busch – Thursdays 11/4, 11/18 & Saturday 11/20 (Dates subject to change due to location availability)
The vision is for the Thursdays to be rehearsals, working on music and musicianship. The Saturdays will be time for community and possibly presenting what the large group or smaller groups have worked on. Perhaps inviting friends and family?
Joan is helping us identify four different choral conductors to lead September, October, November, and December.
Where will we meet? We have two venues – one east side, one west side – that we are close to securing. This time of transition and change gives us the opportunity to explore new areas. Both locations are close-in with parking and on public transit lines. We want to use each for two months and then hear from you about location, accessibility, acoustics, comfort, etc. Our “plan B” includes outdoor venues for the month of September.
What will it cost? Registration for each month-long session is $50. You can register for one, some, or all. Scholarship money is available for anyone who needs assistance.
We thank you for your continuing support of our music, our message, and our mission.
Please sign up for our newsletter (to the right) and stay tuned for upcoming engagements and announcements.
