Denison Concert Choir Invites Community Singers to Join
Date of Event: September 8, 2003
Posted: August 15, 2003
The Denison University department of music is pleased to extend its annual invitation to singers in the Granville area community to join the Denison University Concert Choir for the upcoming season. Established more than 100 years ago to study and perform large choral/orchestral masterworks, the University's 80-voice symphonic choir typically prepares two to three projects per year. The Concert Choir is a community organization in the truest sense with personnel being drawn from the University student body and faculty/staff as well as residents from the village of Granville and the surrounding area.
Conductor for the 2003-04 season is Stephen Caracciolo, an active conductor and composer from Columbus, who has previously conducted the University's Collegium Musicum. He holds degrees from Capital University and Westminster Choir College where he studied conducting with Joseph Flummerfelt and performed choral/orchestral works with the New York Philharmonic. Caracciolo spent last year at Indiana University where he was completing his doctoral residency in conducting.
Rehearsals are held from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. on Monday evenings beginning on September 8 in Swasey Chapel. The projects planned for the fall semester include a performance of Mozart's youthful and thrilling "Coronation Mass in C" with the Denison Orchestra in November and a carol sing-a-long with the Heisey Wind Ensemble in December.
All choral singers in the community are welcome to attend the first rehearsal on Monday, Sept. 8, in Swasey Chapel. No audition is necessary for community members. For more information, you may contact Stephen Caracciolo by e-mail at BWV80@juno.com
