Fall Festival and New Season!

Today the Cheshire Community Chorus performed a set at the Cheshire Fall Festival. We performed a few selections from our spring 2010 concert, Where in the World is the Cheshire Community Chorus. From "Siyahamba" to "New York, New York" we sang our hearts out for the town.

The new season is underway. Rehearsals are every Tuesday from 7-9 at the Highlands Health Center, 745 Highland Ave. Come join one of our rehearsals. This year's concert theme is "The Sights and Sounds of the Season."

Check out "The Choir" on BBC America

Have you guys seen the show, The Choir? It follows the choral director of the London Symphony Community Chorus, Gareth Malone, as he establishes choirs in places where they don't have them to drum up interest in singing and classical music. He then motivates them to do amazing things, such as perform in the Choir Olympics. It's an interesting program, and it shows that you don't have to be a professional singer to put out good music. If you've got BBC America, you should check it out.

New Season! Welcome Back! Also, Fall Festival Moved to Sunday!

The fall season started, and we jumped right back in with a refresher of the songs we'll be singing at the Fall Festival this weekend. Due to the rain, the festival was moved to Sunday. We're still meeting at the Gazebo at Noon, and we'll still be setting up the information table from 11-3. Be sure to let Kate know if you can still make it so she can get an accurate head count.

Next weekend will be Bob and Kendle's wedding. Take advantage of the CCC calendar. Hard copies were handed out at the last rehearsal, and there's a Google Calendar version at the bottom of this page. Those of you in the know may be able to sync it with their own google calendars.

Now onto the Chorus Update, courtesy of Kate:
