Introducing …

The Rochester Pops Chorale

Are you a fan of Broadway, Pop, Jazz, Film, Video-Game, Christmas, Rock and/or Current Hits?
This may be the ensemble for you!

The Rochester Pops Orchestra continues the search for choir members interested in participating in
a chorale that will join the Orchestra for two concerts per season.  Our next concert will feature music
from the 80’s and will feature many well-known and loved selections newly arranged for full
orchestra and choir.  Rehearsals will begin in February of 2019.

The Rochester Pops Chorale provides 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 are on Sundays from 1:30 p.m. to 2:30 p.m. at Bethel Lutheran Church
located at 810 Third Avenue SE, Rochester, MN  55904.

and our Back to the 80’s concert on Sunday, May 12, 2019.
