Sing-Along with Sierra Master Chorale

This is a special invitation to singers of all levels and to those who just appreciate hearing voices sing as one. The Sierra Master Chorale is hosting a community sing-along open to everyone who loves or wants to sing.

Music Director Ken Hardin will conduct Vivaldi’s Gloria, including a small ensemble of locally accomplished musicians. The exciting, moving and satisfying Gloria is Vivaldi’s best-known and most popular piece of sacred music, much beloved by choruses amateur and professional. The piece includes 12 movements, mainly for chorus, with some for solo voices which will be sung by the whole chorus in the sing-along. SMC coordinator Kathy Chastain states, “There hasn’t been a sing-along in our community like this for a long time. We hope everyone will enjoy the experience of singing this uplifting music in a relaxed concert setting and with a ensemble of wonderful musicians.”

On the day of the concert, there will be a warm up and spot rehearsal at 2 p.m. followed by the Sing-Along performance from 2:45 to 4 p.m. Music scores will be available to borrow; you may bring your own or share with a neighbor.

Any proceeds will support the Sierra Master Chorale’s upcoming concert season.

Singers and non-singers alike will enjoy the energy of the rehearsal and performance. Even if you don’t sing or have never sung in a choir, this is your chance to give it a shot! This is a no-pressure fun event.
