[ANDOVER, MA] Andover Choral Society, directed by Dr. Michael Driscoll, invites all who enjoy singing classical choral music to join the chorus in preparing for a virtual spring concert, Voices Diverse and Beautiful: Music of the Merrimack Valley. The concert will feature a variety of sacred and secular choral works from the past through present day. Several performing arts organizations from around the area will also perform in this gala event, showcasing the richness and diversity of the vibrant arts community in the Merrimack Valley.
Virtual, 90-minute rehearsals will be held on Zoom on Mondays beginning on, February 1, at 7:00 p.m. The first two rehearsals are free and open to all who pre-register, with a fee of $50 for all eleven sessions. Rehearsals will feature vocal warm-up exercises, talks by guest speakers, professional instruction in sight-reading and vocal techniques by Dr. Driscoll, and the practice and recording of selections for the spring concert. All voice parts are welcome and singers from any town are encouraged to participate. For more information, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
