Welcome Back, Greeley Chorale Patrons!
Hello dear patrons of the Greeley Chorale!
It feels as if we’ve been away from singing for you for ten years, not just four formal concerts. With the pandemic hopefully subsiding in our country, there are literally thousands of choirs of all shapes and sizes ready to make music once again, and the Greeley Chorale is no exception.
We begin our season with a goodwill offering to the community, a no-charge concert (but ticket required!) to thank our patrons for all the years and decades of support. Our “Wonderful World” performance features music from nations and cultures generally outside our own. This first concert will feature music from the Jewish, African, South African, and African American traditions, offerings from Latin America, and last but not least, a wonderful medley taken from what many consider to be the “great American opera”, Porgy and Bess. The Chorale looks forward to the challenge of new repertoire and new styles added to our own standard fare (which ain’t bad!).
Our Holiday concert will once again present choral classics both old and new as we feature in part some of the individual talent of the Chorale. Along with our December collaboration with the Greeley Philharmonic for Poinsettia Pops, we gratefully present once again our wildly popular Pops and Pasta! in late February.
Finishing the season, we return to one of our favorite venues, First Congregational Church of Greeley, and present the ethereal Requiem setting of Maurice Duruflé, featuring Dr. Joel Bacon, professional organist and Director of Liturgical Music at Colorado State University. The second half of this program will include almost all of our repertoire for the Chorale's tour of Portugal and Spain in June. It will surely be a satisfying concert!
To say we are ready to sing once again is a grand understatement! We look forward to seeing the faces of our patrons and do what we have done for 55 years – make beautiful music!
