Serious singers sought by UT Community Chorus

August 22, 2012 | Arts, Events, UToday



If you’re a serious singer who likes choral music, The University of Toledo Community Chorus wants your voice.

No auditions are necessary, according to Dr. Stephen Hodge, UT professor of music and director of choral activities, who will direct the group.

Singers are invited to rehearsals Monday, Aug. 27, and Monday, Sept. 10. Registration will start at 6:30 p.m. in the Center for Performing Arts Lobby. All practices will begin at 7 p.m. in the Center for Performing Arts Room 1017. Singers should be prepared to purchase their music.

“The UT Community Chorus has been performing fine choral music for 17 years,” Hodge said. “We recently performed the Honegger ‘King David’ oratorio with an orchestra. Other concerts from the past have included Verdi opera choruses, Mozart and Haydn masses, plus folk songs, spirituals and works by contemporary composers.”

The next concert by the UT Community Chorus will feature music by Stanford, Haydn, Mozart and Rutter with organ accompaniment. The free, public performance will take place Sunday, Nov. 18, at 3 p.m. at First Unitarian Church, 3205 Glendale Ave.
