Rehearsals to begin for Sippican Choral Society concert

Dec 22, 2018

Rehearsals for the Sippical Choral Society’s Spring concert are set to begin, and vocalists are encouraged to attend the first session on Monday, Jan. 7, at 7:15 p.m. at Wickenden Chapel on the Tabor Academy campus.

New members are welcome to join the chorus simply by coming to the first rehearsal.

The chorus will be rehearsing for its Spring concert to be held in April. The works of Cole Porter, Irving Berlin, and Rodgers & Hammerstein will be performed at the event. In addition, a small chamber choir, to be chosen by the music director from among chorus members, will perform.

Rehearsals begin at 7:30 p.m. every Monday, but singers are asked to arrive by 7:15 p.m. for the first rehearsal in order to register and receive music. There is a registration fee of $35 (cash or check) to be paid the first rehearsal in order to receive music. All voices are welcome and tenors are especially encouraged to sing with the chorus this year.

In addition, the chorus would like to invite young people still in high school and college to join us as well. As always, everyone who has sung with the chorus in past years will be welcomed back.

The chorus is under the direction of Darry Dolezal, with Michelle Gordon of Mattapoisett as accompanist. The group performs at least two concerts every year, singing the works of the world’s great composers, as well as contemporary music.
