Come Together Choir – Online Choral Rehearsals, Volume Two
September 24 : 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm
An event every week that begins at 2:00 pm on Thursday, repeating until November 13, 2020
Key Chorale is launching 8 new episodes of the Come Together Choir Online Choral Rehearsals, Volume 2 beginning Thursday, September 24 at 2 PM EST. If you are a singer, you know how important it is for singers to come together, to connect, to communicate and to make music. It is part of our DNA. It’s who we are. Due to the health crisis, singing in choirs has been a challenge, but the need to come together, to make music, has never been more important.
Key Chorale launched their Come Together Choir Online Choral Rehearsals, Volume 1 this past March to meet this need. Since then, hundreds of singers from all over the country have participated. The original 6 episodes have had more than 5,000 views to date. If you are just learning about this, you can still register and participate anytime in Volume 1, and our new Volume 2 beginning September 24.
Volume 2, Songs of Protest, Peace & Love includes music from the folk era of the 50s and 60s. We’ll learn great songs like If I Had a Hammer, Blowin’ in the Wind, Down by the Riverside, We Shall Overcome, California Dreamin’ and more. New episodes will premiere each Thursday at 2 PM EST, and then will be available afterwards on the Key Chorale YouTube channel to watch over and over again.
You will learn 11 songs from unison to four-parts, as well as warm-ups and vocal exercises that will improve your breath control and singing ability. These episodes are shot from the perspective of the choir, focused on Artistic Director Joseph Caulkins as he guides 9 singers and YOU through each fun rehearsal. Every episode builds on the previous one, giving you a sense of accomplishment and of being right there. Although this is not an interactive experience, the project is conceived to give the feel of being right there as a singer in the choir. So turn up the volume and sing your heart out with the Come Together Choir!
Singing is essential. We need it in our lives – now more than ever.
