The Oxford Civic Chorus 2015-16 Season, invites new singers!
The first rehearsal of the Oxford Civic Chorus’s 18th season will be Monday evening, August 17, at Oxford-University United Methodist Church on University Avenue in Oxford. New singers can audition at 6:00 pm, and returning singers should arrive no later than 7:00 pm for registration and music distribution. Auditions will also be held at the second rehearsal on August 24 (6:00 pm) and by special arrangement thereafter. To audition, just meet Director, Thomas Ardrey, at the piano, where he will lead you through a simple pitch-matching exercise; no prepared piece of music is required. Regular rehearsals are held each Monday evening from 7-8:30 pm in Wesley Hall at OU Methodist. The theme for the Chorus’s fall season includes a variety of English choral music from composers such as Tallis, Handel, Attwood, Howells, Lennon and McCartney. The fall concert is slated for December with other community appearances to be scheduled.
