Bring your voice and join other choral enthusiasts in singing these masterworks of Faure, Bach and Brahms. The evening begins with a vocal warmup by Mary Hack and a brief rehearsal of difficult sections led by Ms. Gould. Ms Hack will also help with vocal techniques to execute vocally challenging excerpts. Sections will have the opportunity to sing the most popular solos as part of the rehearsal. After the break, the work will be performed in its entirety without pause, featuring professional soloists.
