Wow, summer went fast, didn't it? Seems like it was just June and here we are almost ready to start the 2016/17 season! We have a wonderful but demanding fall season planned. In early December we will join the Newport Symphony Orchestra and the Willamette Master Singers to perform the Christmas selections of Handel's Messiah. And the following weekend we'll perform our own Wishes and Candles concert which will feature Vivaldi's Gloria along with a selection of holiday themed pieces. An exciting season! We will begin regular rehearsals on August 27th.
In preparation for the season, the Central Coast Chorale will be holding auditions for new singers on Wednesday, August 24th from 4 to 6 pm at the Newport campus of the Oregon Coast Community College. Mary Lee and her able assistants will take applicants through a series of exercises testing your ability to match pitch, recognize rhythm, sing in harmony with a small group. You may, if desired, prepare an audition piece to sing but it's not necessary.
If you're interested in joining the chorale but can't attend the Wednesday audition, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org so we can set an alternate audition time.
