Message to Membership – March 28, 2024

Message from the Music Director

Dear Chorale,

Thank you for another successful, albeit shorter rehearsal this past Monday. I feel very confident about where we are in preparation for our Sitzprobe rehearsal on April 8 with maestro Bairos. Plan on that rehearsal being full length. As I mentioned this past Monday, please be sure to spend a little bit of time with the music between now and the Sitzprobe. It will ensure that everything you have been doing well is retained.

As a reminder, there is no rehearsal April 1 – and that’s no joke!

In the meantime, take advantage of a number of different concerts in the area that are coming up, specifically this Friday evening (3/29 at 7pm)where I will be leading my AHCC church choir and orchestra, (as well as some soloists that are well known to you!) in a presentation of a relatively new work (2015), the “St. John Passion“ by Bob Chilcott. The concert is free, and will last about an hour.

Enjoy your Monday night off, and I will see you in a week and a half.


Message from the President

Dear Hartford Chorale,

This past Saturday, the full board sat for a day-long strategic planning session. We brainstormed several paths to expanding our community and will be sharing these ideas with you when we begin implementation plans. I’ve attached a photo from the session. We are missing a few key members in this photograph. To me, the collective brainpower of the board is the force behind the big bang that expands the choral universe. We are extremely fortunate to be doing what we do and I thank you all for being a part of the excellence that can only be the Hartford Chorale. After all… how can we keeping from singing!
