Welcome to the brand-new year!  It's already January 18th, so hopefully you're settling into 2012 and enjoying it.  There's finally some snow sticking around; we'll let you decide if that's a good thing or not!

We hope that you're as excited as we are about these changes!

Manitowoc Symphony Orchestra Community Chorus Announces Auditions

The Manitowoc Symphony Orchestra announces auditions for membership in its Community Chorus, directed by Jennifer Kasten. Auditions will take place in the Choir Room at First Presbyterian Church, 502 North Eighth Street, Manitowoc, on Tuesday, September 6. Interested singers can call (920) 860-6306 to schedule an audition time between 7:00 and 10:00 p.m. A prepared selection is not required. Instead, singers will be asked to sing simple vocal exercises and the patriotic song America the Beautiful to demonstrate their range and vocal quality.

Upcoming events for the Community Chorus include an appearance on the MSO’s October 29th HALLOWEEN SPOOKTACULAR and the annual holiday performance of Handel’s Messiah on Sunday, December 11th. Because of space limitations at the performance venue, the choir for Messiah is limited to the participation of only 40 to 50 singers. A larger group will be used for the SPOOKTACULAR and for other events later in the season that are still inn the planning stage. The chorus rehearses at the Capitol Civic Centre every other Tuesday evening from 7:00 to 9:00 p.m., starting September 13.
