Now is the time to join in the second season. The Chorale will welcome new members at its weekly rehearsals, Tuesday evenings at 7:30PM. Come, meet the people and try it out. Formal auditions will take place at the end of October, after you’ve gotten your voice into shape and learned the music. Please respond by email or phone: 310-941-3042;
The DMC’s Christmas concert, entitled HARK THE HERALD ANGELS will feature the newly formed chorale accompanied by organ and brass ensemble. “Gloria” by John Rutter, and the “Christmas Cantata” of Pinkham, plus old favorites and some captivating arrangements of other seasonals.
