Have you ever wondered what it takes to meld a group of talented individual singers into a cohesive professional opera chorus? Well, here's a rare opportunity to watch and listen as the magic takes form.
The Festival Opera Chorus invites you to attend an open rehearsal, as they prepare for the upcoming Opera in the Park and Make Our Garden Grow concerts.
You'll enjoy a close-up view of the dedication and shared work ethic that helps shape the sound of this distinctive group. In addition to the opportunity to see and hear a working rehearsal, chorus master James Toland keeps the audience "in the loop" as he demonstrates the commitment to excellence and attention to detail that distinguishes a well-prepared chorus from something less.
Don't miss this once-a-year chance to
gain an insider's view of upcoming performances.
Light refreshments will be served and donations accepted, though not required. Call 925.944.9610 for additional information.
