Community chorus along lakeshore looks for singers

The Capitol Civic Centre and choral directors Jim and Susie Miller are exploring establishing an adult Community Chorus, with the home base being the Capitol.
MANITOWOC, Wis. (WFRV) – The Capitol Civic Centre and choral directors Jim and Susie Miller are exploring establishing an adult Community Chorus, with the home base being the Capitol. Tentative plans are to form a choral group that would rehearse one night a week (for 1-1/2 hours) starting in September.

Repertoire would be varied and chosen from popular, Broadway, jazz, and folk. Music would be selected to fit the theme of the events for which the chorus would be singing, and selected to match the abilities of the singers. “The Lakeshore community is full of a wide variety of significant talent.

Certainly there are few things as joyous to hear and as inspiring to help create than a great vocal performance,” stated Capitol Executive Director Matthew Schliesman.
 
“Children have many opportunities to sing with a group; adults much less so. We are putting out feelers to see if there is interest from area women and men, which will determine how we move forward.” Jim and Susie Miller are long-time music teachers and choral directors, now retired from formal teaching, however, both continue to teach privately and will direct the adult choir. The ability to read music is not necessary.

A simple and friendly audition process would take place for interested applicants. Annual registration fee would cover related costs.

These and other details will be determined based upon the level of interest. Adults (high school-age and older) who would are interested should contact either Matthew Schliesman at the Capitol Civic Centre via email (matts@cccshows.org) or Jim or Susie Miller at 684-4862, no later than July 11.
