Bay Chorale 10th Anniversary Season Launch

baychorale1The Bay Chorale is embarking on our 10th season of making choral music in St. Margaret’s Bay. We welcome new members to join us on September 14 to learn about our choir and conduct a short voice placement session with our Artistic Director, Christina Murray. This evening is open to prospective singers joining us for the full term (women’s chorus) or partial term (men’s chorus).

Our 2016-17 season includes a new twist on programming our holiday concert will feature a mens chorus, with separate repertoire presented by a womens chorus. Mens voices are always in demand in community choirs, and we hope that this new focussed singing opportunity offers a unique way for returning, alumni and new male voices to participate in The Bay Chorale. Registration for the mens chorus will remain open until late October. Four intensive weekly rehearsals will lead up to dress rehearsal and concert in early December. Please contact us for further information or to register.
