Spring Rehearsal Season Begins

Come join us for an evening of singing and creating!

Choir Organization Night: 3/20

Adult Choir Starts 3/27

 This year we honor and learn from two Indigenous Peoples: “Ganigonhi:oh: The Good Mind”, from the Onondaga/Haudenosaunee, and “Sumak Kawsay: GoodLiving/ (Buen Vivir)” from the Andean/Quachua people. Both interconnected and essential to our survival.

You’ll get to participate in one of the creative sessions listed below. We will also sing as a big group and begin exploring the theme for this season.

Sessions with the Syracuse Community Choir Creative Directors:

LET LOOSE & IMPROVISE (Colleen Kattau)

THERE’S A NEW SONG IN YOU! (Kath Fathers & Marcia Hagan)

ROUNDS, CHANTS, & PROTEST SONGS (Karen Mihalyi)

SING OUT, SING BETTER (Alyssa Courter)
