The Rochester Pops Chorale

This may be the ensemble for you!

The Rochester Pops Orchestra has started the search for choir members interested in participating in
a chorale that will join the Orchestra for two concerts per season.  The first concert will be on
Sunday, April 30, 2017 and feature music from many Broadway shows.

The Rochester Pops Chorale will provide a fun outlet for people who enjoy singing, while keeping
rehearsals to a minimum for busy individuals.  From enhancing film scores with dramatic vocalizations
and providing support to soloists to new arrangements of songs from all genres specially created for
our ensemble and orchestra.  This chorale will surely be a rewarding and unique experience
for all who participate.

Here are the details:
– Rehearsals will be on Sundays from 2:00 p.m. to 2:45 p.m. at Mount Olive Lutheran Church.
– The Chorale will be featured at the Broadway concert on Sunday, April 30, 2017.
– Selections will be fun, yet challenging with opportunities for solos and/or small groups.
