Goshen Community Chorale fall season to feature English Cathedral Music

The Goshen Community Chorale will begin rehearsals for our fall season on Tuesday evening, September 10th.  We will again be rehearsing from 7:00-9:00 at College Mennonite Church.   The theme for this season will be English Cathedral Music.  The program will feature compositions by Purcell, Byrd, Holst, Vaughan Williams and several others and we will be accompanied by organ and brass.  The performance is scheduled for Sunday evening, November 24th, at First Presbyterian Church in Goshen.  There will be a dress rehearsal on the Saturday morning prior to the performance.

The Chorale welcomes new members who have a background in choral singing and who wish to commit themselves to regular attendance at rehearsals and to learning challenging repertoire.  For persons with prior choral experience auditions are not ordinarily required. A special “Choral Scholars” program to support the participation of high school students with superior ability and maturity is an important part of the Chorale’s operations.  Persons interested in joining the Chorale should contact our music director, William Mateer, at mateers@aol.com or (574) 533-2562.
