Tickets now available for Rise!
(10/1/20) Tickets are now available for our upcoming virtual concert, Rise! Music for Social Change, a prerecorded and online performance, premiering Saturday, October 24th at 7 pm CDT. It will be available for viewing through October 31st.
Admission is Pay-As-You-Can, starting at $0 (with a suggested amount of $10). Tickets may be purchased online in advance or at any time during the concert's viewing window. You can watch the concert whenever you like, as often as you like, all from the comfort of your own home. Visit AnywhereSeat to get your tickets!
In spite of the pandemic, Chorus members have continued to come together to create music in virtual style. This concert will be a presentation of songs by under-represented composers with social justice themes, from women's suffrage to civil rights.
A portion of the proceeds from this concert will be shared with the Justice Choir organization.
Announcing plans for the upcoming season!
(7/22/20) Greetings! We are excited to share our plans for the upcoming season with you including virtual rehearsals and concerts, and collaboration with Memphis ChoralArts!
During our summer board meetings, it was decided to have completely virtual rehearsals and concerts, with hybrid in person and virtual rehearsals as an option when the number of new COVID-19 cases decreases to a safe level. If there is not enough interest in virtual, we will postpone until the Spring and see what the situation is like then.
These virtual rehearsals would take place using Zoom and My Choral Coach will help guide independent practice. In order to participate, you will need headphones, and a microphone which is built into many webcams and phones. Optionally, a camera will be needed to record visuals for concerts. Your camera can be external or built into your laptop, tablet, or phone. Tutorials will be provided. Virtual concerts will be prerecorded and released online in a virtual choir format.
If you have not sung with us before, rehearsals are Monday evenings at 7:00 pm. We will begin the 2020-2021 season on August 17th. Dues are set at $25 for each "semester" of the season (with the second semester beginning in January, hopefully in-person).
Please click this link to answer our survey if you would like to be a part of our season! It does not matter whether you are near or far for the virtual half of our season, since everything will be online!
As always, let us know if you have any questions! We'll also keep updating the website and our Facebook page with more info for both singers and our audience.
Looking to the '20-'21 season
(6/24/20) The Chorus' Board and Artistic Director are hard at work determining what the next season will look like. Music and the arts are something that should never be sacrificed or put to the wayside. We feel that the social connection and soul-soothing that singing in a choir provides are greatly needed in this current time. We want our members and audience to know that we plan on returning for the next season on Monday, August 17th, whether it be in person or virtually. All are welcome!
Stay in tune with the Chorus!
The first half of our '20-'21 season will be virtual, including the performances!
