The Putnam Chorale is searching for singers to augment its 35-person chorus. Directed by Dr. Douglas Anderson, the Chorale draws performers from Putnam, Westchester, Dutchess counties in NY and Fairfield County in CT. The fall program will present an All-JS Bach concert in early December, consisting of well-known cantatas written by the renowned composer. The cantatas include:
Lobet den Herrn, Alle Heiden (BWV 230)
Christ Lag in Todesbanden (BWV 4)
Wachet Auf, Ruft Uns die Stimme (BWV 140)
The Chorale will begin rehearsals on Monday, August 29 at the Carmel High School Music Building (adjoining the main school building). The first rehearsal will start at 6:30 pm, to allow for registration and music distribution. Subsequent rehearsals will begin on Monday, September 12, 2022, from 7 pm to 9 pm. Tuition (including music) is $140 for the fall semester.
There is a special need for singers for the tenor and bass sections, but all singers are welcome. While there is no audition requirement, it is expected that the participants have some music background, or prior experience in singing in a choral/choir group.
