The Durham Community Chorale, now beginning its 31st season, invites interested singers to a voice-placement session at the Durham Arts Council, 120 Morris Street, at 6:30 pm on Tuesday, August 29th.

The Durham Community Chorale, under the leadership of Melody Zentner,  is a locally-based group of people who share a love of singing.  Their members include professionally trained singers as well as those who have “never really sung in public” before.  The Chorale was founded 30 years ago, in 1987, to give people in the community an opportunity to perform a variety of quality choral literature.  This past spring, the DCC celebrated its 30th anniversary with a jazz-themed concert at the Carolina Theatre.

Membership ($55 per semester) in the Chorale is open to all adults in the Triangle.  New members are required to participate in a voice-placement session to be held at the Durham Arts Council, 120 Morris Street, at 6:30 Tuesday, August 29th.  Beginning the following Tuesday, September 6, rehearsals will be each Tuesday at the DAC from 7:00 pm to 9:00 pm with their holiday concert scheduled for Saturday, December 2nd.

The mission of the Chorale is to provide a focus on music for the purpose of enlightening, educating and exposing participants and the community to a variety of choral music through public performances.  DCC also include performances by students from public and/or private schools.  Their goal is to educate their singers in proper choral and performance techniques.
