OUR COMMUNITY CHORUS:
Branch County Community Chorus (MUSI 104/C)
A non-auditioned, mixed ensemble whose members are drawn from Coldwater and the surrounding area. This ensemble seeks to explore repertoire not accessible to the average church choir. A wide range of choral music is prepared for performance in the Branch County area. If you enjoy singing and are looking for a congenial atmosphere to experience challenging choral literature this is the choir for you! Everyone is welcome in this ensemble which can be taken for enrichment or for academic credit. You may register online or visit the Grahl Center to register.
How to Join
There is no “formal” audition, however we do ask that you come to the first rehearsal with an open mind and a willingness to learn. We also ask that you call 269-965-3931 ext. 2566 to schedule a vocal assessment with our director, Dr. Gerald Case-Blanchard.
