Once again Rocky Mountain chorale is hosting some summer sings. These are open to anyone who wants to spend a delightful evening in song. There is no need to register ahead of time. Just show up and enjoy singing in a social, low pressure environment while keeping the vocal cords warm over the summer. All “sings” will be held at Pine Street Church in Boulder 1237 Pine. These are casual sing-a-longs. There are no admission fees, but good will donations will be taken to monetarily thank the directors and accompanists of the evenings.
Our first Summer Sing was extraordinarily successful and well-attended, with representatives from four Boulder chorale groups (RMC, Boulder Chorale, Cantabile, The Renaissance Project and others with no affiliation). The Pianist was Jessica Nilles and the Director was Jimmy Howe. Both are CU music grad students. It was attended by approximately 45 people. Our second Summer Sing, led by Norm Anderson, our award-winning accompanist, was also successful, with about 30 people from three different chorale groups attending.
Our third Summer Sing will be Monday August 10, and will be led by our new Director, Lisa Phillips, with Norm Anderson at the piano.
See you there!
Our Spring 2015 concert was a hit! As always, we had a standing ovation.
Here is a video of our opening number, Mozart’s Veni Sancte Spiritus.
Another of our numbers was the Japanese Folk song, Takeda Lullaby. It is a lovely blend of eastern and western music styles.
The following video is from our Fall 2014 concert. It is the popular Woodchoppers’ Ball. Notice the people jitterbugging in the aisles at about 2:14. We DO have fun!
The Rocky Mountain Chorale also has a project called Music for All. It consists of a volunteer group from the larger Rocky Mountain Chorale and it is taking music out into the Boulder community, especially to those who can’t get out to go to concerts. If you know of a group or an event that you would like us to sing for, please call Anna Kay at 303-604-1200.
Founded in 1978, Rocky Mountain Chorale (RMC) is one of the Boulder area’s oldest and finest community choirs. We are a mixed choir with over eighty active singers. We employ a professional conductor, accompanist, and other musicians as necessary. Our repertoire ranges from African folk songs through modern American choral pieces to major classical choral works. RMC presents two major programs each year and and also sings at various community outreach programs.
