Join music director, Michael Driscoll, and the Andover Choral Society for our 2014-2015 concert season. Season highlights include Carl Orff’s dramatic Carmina Burana (January 2015) and Joseph Haydn’s Missa in tempore belli (Mass in time of war) Ralph Vaughan Williams’ Five Mystical Songs.
The Chorus rehearses during most Monday evenings from 7:20-9:30pm at Christ Church in Andover. The first step in joining the Andover Choral Society is coming to one of our open rehearsals. Prospective singing members are encouraged to check us out during the first two rehearsals for each concert. During the 2014-2015 season we will hold open rehearsals on September 15 and 22, 2014 and again on February 2 and 9, 2015. Although we do not audition prospective members, an ability to match pitch and read music is a prerequisite. The music director does listen to each new member individually to test for voice quality and range to ensure that singers are seated in the voice section that best fits their voice and the needs of the ensemble. Regular attendance and committed participation are obvious requirements.
All voice parts are welcome! Tenors and basses are especially encouraged to attend.
