Rehearsal Commitment

Friday 4:30pm-6:45pm, Lincoln Hall Room B20 

Additional musicianship workshop

Mondays and Thursdays, Lincoln Hall Room 149

Level 1: 4:30pm-5:30pm

Level 2: 5:30pm-6:30pm

Level 1 is intended for basic concept review. We will do some basic rhythm reading, and unison sigh singing (maybe some canon work).

Level 2 is for students who have more advanced theoretical knowledge, and for those who have been in chorale in the past. Basic knowledge of the staff, rhythm and pitch reading, and some part independence is assumed. We will play with multi-part rhythm and pitch reading examples in order to build confidence and independence in these skills.

These sessions will be open to all, and are strongly suggested for beginners and for singers or music majors with goals of pursuing rigorous musical activity beyond their time at Cornell. This is an opportunity to greater individualize and differentiate the learning needs of a larger ensemble. Please make notes in rehearsals of concepts, musical excerpts, or skills that challenge you, and we can work on anything that you bring in small groups during these times.

Spring 2018 performance date

April 27th, Friday 8pm-9pm

Sage Chapel

        The Cornell University Chorale, in collaboration with the Cornell University Percussion Ensemble, organist Anna Steppler, and harpist Jessica Willbee, present Leonard Bernstein's jubilant and virtuosic Chichester Psalms. As we celebrate Bernstein's 100th Birthday (and the fast-approaching end of the academic year) come and enjoy this FREE concert.

        The performance will also feature a pair of folks songs led by chorale students, a solo performance of Anna Steppler's own transcriptions of orchestral music by Ralph Vaughan Williams, and a piece performed by the percussion ensemble.
