Dear Friends of Concord Chamber Singers,

It is mid-April, and the trees and flowers are in bloom. The Lehigh Valley is beautiful this time of year. CCS’s original plans for Friday evenings in spring would be gathering together in final rehearsals for our “April in Paris” concert. We would be reviewing our French, tightening up our harmonies, finding our groove for the swing tunes, deepening our “espressivo” for the opera chorus, and raising our excitement to share our work with you. This spring is different. This April, while we sing in our own homes, we miss singing together.

Joining choruses all over the country, Concord Chamber Singers has put our rehearsals on hold for the health and well-being of our members and our community. We are staying connected sharing photos and video clips that make us smile, and turning our after-rehearsal pub and trivia time into a weekly virtual chat with “snacks” and storytelling. As we adjust to our current reality and mourn the loss of our live spring programming, I wanted to reach out and assure you that Concord Chamber Singers will be back, filled with music, meaning, and laughter!

We are already planning for the future. When we return, in full artistic bloom, CCS looks forward to welcoming you to our concerts. We are ever grateful for your support, and we want to share our music and our appreciation with you, our community.

In the meantime, be well, stay safe, and know that you are missed. As we take care of one another, we want to share a few short samples of our music, recorded live. I hope they make you smile, and know that we are excited to see you again … as soon as we can.

Warm wishes,
Jennifer

 




A word from our Director, Dr. Jennifer Kelly

Live music goes beyond notes and rhythms to communication and storytelling. The most meaningful communication often happens within the blurry lines, the surprising moments, the personalization of stories that happens only with live music. While a recording of perfection is about the sound, live music is about the collective experience of everyone in the room.

We believe in the power of music and song to wake up, turn on, and encourage us to feel something --- anything. And the audience participates in the live music experience as we invite you to listen, to embrace the songs we offer, and to welcome the spirit of community.
