Message from Kyle –

Choir, here is some information about memorized selections for the holiday concert and solo opportunities:

  • Memorized Selections:
    • Carol of the Bells
    • Betelehemu
    • Glow
    • Have Yourself
    • Let It Snow! Let It Snow!
    • Sleigh Ride (w/ Santa Claus directing).
Note: for returning members, this represents two new pieces for memorization as the first three were memorized for last year’s performances and will hopefully return quickly to memorized and ready.  Thanks to our new members this Fall for logging additional time around memorization.
We will be providing some tips and suggestions in rehearsal around memorization as well as working hard to quickly get to a place where our notes are learned on the above selections so that we can run them in their entirety repeatedly before concert weekend.
  • Solo Opportunities:
    • Let It Snow! Let It Snow!  [any voice part, memorized for the performances]
    • Christmas Song [any voice part]
    • Have Yourself a Very Merry Christmas [any voice part]
  • Solo Auditions: Thursday, October 10 (6:15-6:45 / after rehearsal)
      • Solo auditions will be unaccompanied.
      • If you are interested in auditioning but the 10th does not work for you, please contact Kyle.
  • What we are looking for in a CRS soloist:
      • Great musicality (intonation, appropriate style, beautiful vocal quality that matches the song).
      • Great presentation (ability to tell the story/emotion of the song/narrative with confidence

CRS Voice Program Begins for 2019-2020:

We are excited to have our own Andrea Zorzutti leading the CRS Voice Program this season.  She will be offering a package that includes 2 group lessons of 80 minutes each + 5 individual lessons of 30 minutes each.  The cost would be $25 per individual lesson and $12.50 per group lesson (the total for the cycle being $150 per singer).  Once again, space will be limited per cycle.

Please register here if you would like to attend the Voice Program.

See you on Thursday,
