Male Singers Needed For UTC Master Chorale

Wednesday, April 24, 2013

For 6 weeks each summer, talented singers from the Chattanooga area combine with UTC graduate students to form the UTC Master Chorale.  The chorus was founded nine years ago to fill a need in the UTC Music Department to have a graduate level chorus for our masters students who attend primarily in the summer months.  It is open to community members who are experienced singers and can read music.  The focus is on major works with organ and smaller significant choral works from many different styles and traditions.

 

This year, there is a particular need for male singers. Rehearsals begin on Thursday, May 16 and continue on Tuesdays and Thursdays until concert week ending June 20.  Literature this summer includes the Requiem by Swedish composer Steve Dobrogosz and a set of Love Songs by various composers. 

Auditions will be scheduled during the week of May 5-10 by contacting the director, Dr. Kevin Ford, UTC Director of Choral Activities at Kevin-Ford@utc.edu.
