All Singers are Invited to Voices Chorale NJ Event
SING OUT: David McConnell will conduct Voices Chorale’s “New Jersey Summer Open Sing” on August 22 at Music Together in Hopewell.
On Monday, August 22 at 7:30 p.m., Voices Chorale New Jersey (VCNJ) invites all singers to join an open summer sing at Music Together Worldwide Headquarters at 225 Pennington-Hopewell Road, Hopewell.
Featured will be excerpts from Folk Songs of the Four Seasons by Ralph Vaughan Williams in an arrangement by the contemporary English composer John Whittaker. David McConnell, artistic director of VCNJ, will conduct. Sheet music and refreshments will be provided.
The work brings together two vital elements of Vaughan Williams’ musical character: his lifelong love for English folksongs and folk carols and his strong support for amateur music-making. The cantata features 16 varied folk song settings, bound together in seasonal groupings that take the listener on a journey through the four seasons.
Those interested in joining Voices Chorale NJ may audition that evening by contacting Paula Mirabile at email@example.com. All voice parts are welcome to audition, but tenors and bass/baritones are especially encouraged. Visit voiceschorale.org for more information.
