Calhoun County Civic Chorale begins its winter season

Monday, August 31 marks the beginning of the Calhoun County Civic Choral’s fall season.

The group will meet in the Performance Center of Mason Hall on the Jacksonville State University campus at 7:15 p.m to start preparing for its Winter Concert, which will take place on December 6, 2015.

The Chorale is under the direction of Dr. Patricia Corbin, JSU director of choral activities, and will be accompanied by Dr. Lornalee Curtis.

The Calhoun County Civic Chorale is one of five choral ensembles sponsored by the David L. Walters Department of Music of Jacksonville State University.

Dr. Corbin said, “The Chorale is currently accepting members from the local community and the Jacksonville State student body.

Rehearsals are set to take place every Monday evening, following the JSU calendar, until the final performance date.”

August 31, the first rehearsal is a “New Member Open House,” where interested singers may come and learn more about the Chorale without further obligation.

It’s a great way for students to find out if the group is a good fit for them.

As for the group themselves, Dr. Corbin describes the needs of the group by saying, “The Chorale welcomes singers who have voices that can blend well with others, are able to learn their individual vocal part from written music, and enjoy singing classical choral masterworks.”

The featured work on the concert will be Camille Saint-Saëns’ Christmas Oratorio, Mozart’s Regina Coeli along with other smaller works.

The concert will be held at First United Methodist Church in Anniston, located at 1400 Noble Street.
