Singers Needed For This Saturday's Community Sing Event
Looking for something fun to do this weekend? When you hear your favorite tune, do you or someone you know break out in song? Or do you secretly dream of singing the Hallelujah Chorus with a professional orchestra?
Well...you're in luck.
This Saturday, January 20, 2018, at Music Hall, Cincinnati May Festival Chorus invites singers of all voice types and levels in the community who love to sing to be a part of an inaugural event, Messiah: Community Sing.
Robert Porco, May Festival chorus director, will be leading the Community Chorus in an effort to unite cultures and voices in the community. Porco hopes this Saturday's Messiah: Community Sing event, encourages participants, as well as members of the broader community, to join the May Festival Community Chorus supplementing vocalists in the May Festival Chorus on May 26, 2018. Those participating in both community chorus events will join Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra under the direction of May Festival principal conductor, Juanjo Mena, for a monumental performance at the newly renovated Cincinnati Music Hall.
No auditions are necessary for the May Festival Community Chorus and there is no fee to join. Just a love of singing is required. Approximately 190 singers have responded to participate in the Community Sing event this Saturday. Of those, an estimated 121 singers have committed to joining the May 26th May Festival performance .
