For anyone who loves to sing and has wondered what it would be like to sing with a group, Connecticut Choral Society (CCS) will host an annual event later this month that can help with both.
CCS invites the public to join the chorus for an evening of song as they perform the classic ode to fate and fortune, Carmina Burana. The summer sing-along is a yearly annual event that allows singers interested in choral music to get a sense of what it would be like to sing with a choral ensemble and to meet the members of the Choral Society in a friendly, relaxed atmosphere.
Scores will be loaned out for those who need them, and snacks and beverages will help complete the welcome to the world of choral music.
The sing-in is also an opportunity for aspiring vocalists to sing under the baton of Eric Dale Knapp, a conductor whose talents have been featured on the worldwide stage.
Maestro Knapp currently serves as artistic director and conductor for Connecticut Choral Society and New Jersey Choral Society. He is also principal conductor for New American Festival Symphony Orchestra at Carnegie Hall.
The Summer Sing will be in the Glover Community Room at Trinity Episcopal Church, 36 Main Street. It will begin at 7 pm on Monday, August 27.
Registration is $10 and participants are asked to visit ctchoralsociety.org to register to ensure there will enough scores available for those singing. Non-singers are also welcome to register and enjoy the evening filled with song.
For those who are ready to audition or simply want to learn more about CCS, the choral’s Facebook page or its website. Auditions will be held August 27 prior to the Summer Sing. They will also be conducted Monday, September 17, and by arrangement.
