CHESTERTOWN — The Chester River Chorale invites all who love to sing to join it for its spring season as it rehearses at 6 p.m. Monday’s in Heron Point’s Wesley Hall for its spring concert in April.
The chorus welcomes all adult voices to join its 90-plus members — ranging in age from 18 to over 80 — to wrap up its 21st season. Auditions are not required. Dues are $50, with students free. The dues help pay for the music.
Artistic Director Doug Cox has put together a spring program titled “Mystic Fire: Music in Words — Words in Music” that will be a headline event of the 2020 Kent County Poetry Festival, April 24 to 26.
“The program title refers to the creative process in composing music for voice and in particular, its inseparable relationship with poetry,” Cox said. “The words of the poet are inspiration for the composer’s music.”
Chorale members are amateur singers drawn mainly from Kent and Queen Anne’s counties.
The Chester River Chorale is a nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization funded in part by the Kent County Arts Council and by an operating grant from the Maryland State Arts Council.
The chorus’ mission is to provide opportunity, education and inspiration for amateur singers to strive for artistic excellence. For more information, visit www.chesterriverchorale.org or call 410–928-5566.
