The sounds of Handel, Brahms, Copland ... call them old songs with a new set of voices.
A new group of singers are tackling the old guard of choral repertoire. They call themselves the Community Chorus of Detroit, and they're accepting any aspiring vocalists with basic music reading ability, from 13 to 130, to join the non-auditioned chorus as they work toward two spring concerts at the Detroit Waldorf School in Indian Village. With guest conductors and artists from the University of Michigan School of Music, Theatre and Dance, the aim and precision are high. Rehearsals are mostly on Sundays, with performances at Saturday, May 21 at 7:30 pm and Sunday, May 22 at 4 pm.
Early registration to guarantee your sheet music is Feb.16 and the final registration deadline is Feb. 25.
