Chapter Opens 2013-2014 Season

Ah, the lazy days of summer… sipping iced tea on the terrace… lounging under a shady tree with a good book…this is the life…

WHAT??  You say I should be using this time to plan next year’s choir anthems?? Ugh, why bother? My poor choir is probably going to sound even worse next year – at least that warbling alto retired (ten years too late)- but that leaves only one alto who sings so softly I wonder why she bothers… and the tenors! – those lost sheep… that new bass reads music really well, but didn’t I just hear that he was getting a divorce and moving to Texas? Well, at least          there are those two high-school girls in the soprano section – they sing pretty well – if only I could get their attention…

5ef79ccd86881f21f38dc48cae5038ffWait, I just remembered! The Greater Hartford Chapter of the AGO has a great event scheduled on Saturday, September 21st, an Anthem Reading Session focusing on pieces that aren’t too complicated, pieces that don’t need a huge choir, anthems that might work really well for choirs like mine. I think I’ll bring my friend along (her choir is even smaller than mine) – I know the lunch will be good, too!




WHEN:  Saturday, September 21, 2013, 10:00 am – 1:00 pm

WHAT:  Anthem Reading Session, with emphasis on works for the smaller choir, Membership event with lunch
