Have you heard the news?
We want you to join us!
It's not too late to register...
Come, sing with us!
We have already resumed our regular, weekly offerings:
Our Youth Chorus (for students in grades 3 - 8) rehearses from 5:00 - 6:30pm under the direction of our newest RUC Community member, Ms. Helen Kernizan!
Our Adult Chorus (for adults and students in grades 9 - 12) rehearses from 7:00 - 8:30pm under the direction of our Founder and Artistic Director, Mr. Matthew LaPine!
During our rehearsals, singers work on vocal technique, musicianship skills, learning new solo songs and ensemble songs, learning new musical concepts, performing, and so many more wonderful things! The Youth Chorus rehearsals are structured in an age-appropriate fashion that transitions seamlessly from one activity to the next. The Adult Chorus rehearsals are engaging and dig deep into musical content.
Our rehearsals are interactive, and you can expect an exciting virtual experience. We've taken the time to learn from what worked and what didn't work when we were forced to go remote in March, and we think you're going to like the tweaks that we have made. Join us to see for yourself!
Besides our regular rehearsals, we are presenting large-scale virtual performances, Community Sings, recitals and cabarets, our new and exciting "Meet the Musicians Podcast," instruction in vocal technique, musicianship classes, varied workshop sessions, and plenty of social events. We are so proud of all that is happening, and we want you to be a part of it.
Our offerings may continue to be virtual for now, but we're planning to move to in-person rehearsals as soon as it is safe to do so. Our COVID-19 Response Team has been following all of the latest research, and we are keeping current on the emerging science surrounding COVID-19 and aerosol transmission. We will not resume in-person group singing until it is safe.
This is our fourth season, and we're going to ensure that it is our best season yet. What are you waiting for? Join (or re-join!) Rise Up Chorus today!
