Singers for Emmaus Chorale
The Emmaus Chorale is seeking additional voices for its spring concert, “It’s a Grand Night for Singing.” Weekly rehearsals begin 7:00 p.m. on Tuesday, March 3 at Faith Presbyterian Church in Emmaus and will culminate in a public concert there on Sunday, June 7 at 3 p.m. All voice parts are welcome, particularly low voice.
This 45-member community choir, which is based in Emmaus, is open to participants throughout the Lehigh Valley. Auditions are not required. Membership is $25 per rehearsal set.
The Emmaus Chorale, led by Its artistic director, Janet Davis, will present a spring concert celebrating the sheer joy of singing, including a variety of Broadway, spiritual, worship and classics from Irving Berlin, Andrew Lloyd Weber, Vincent Youman, Richard Rutter and others. Rutter’s raucous “Cantate Domino,” a favorite of choristers and audiences alike, will be one of many highlights.
Davis is particularly known for her inventive programming and her on-the-spot technical voice training. She has a master’s degree from Westminster Choir College where she has also taught. She previously directed the Des Moines Choral Society, where in 2000, she was recognized as “Best Performing Artist” by the Iowa Arts Council for her accomplishments. She made her conductor debut at Carnegie Hall in June 2001 with Stravinsky’s “Symphony of Psalms”
