Peabody Community Chorus

Would you like to be a part of the Community Chorus?
Come get a taste of what we do with no obligation to join at our Open Sings. We’ll jump in singing, warming up with stretches and exercises and then learn new songs together. Ideal participation is with regular attendance to prepare for upcoming performances.

We sing a range of styles (classical, folk, world) and welcome readers and non-readers who learn well by ear. The group truly will grow around those who come to sing and all interested in singing are welcome.

Performances
We aim to engage with the community and so, our performances are on site in community centers where we can present our work to the community while also engaging our audience in group singing. End of season concert date TBA.

Any other questions?
Contact director Kristen Toedtman.

Peabody is proud to be partnering with Johns Hopkins School of Education to offer programs in the heart of East Baltimore’s revitalization. As part of its mission to all those who wish to participate, the Community Chorus is free for 2017-18.

Community Chamber Chorus

Introducing the Peabody Community Chamber Chorus, a smaller ensemble in which we will focus on a range of styles with more attention to intricate harmonies and the printed score. Auditions will be held on the dates below. This is not a competition and the focus will stay strong on enjoying ourselves singing together. This is for people who have read music in the past, who have experience singing or playing in small ensembles and/or those who learn very well and can hold their own on a part. If you’re not sure if you’re up for it, sign up for an audition and get feedback from Kristen on what to work on.

What to prepare for your audition:

  1.  Bring 2 contrasting songs you like to sing with sheet music for the pianist (charts are acceptable as well). Many sources are available on line for finding printed music (Musicnotes.com is one source). One a cappella song is allowed, but one must be with piano accompaniment.
  2. A short sight-singing excerpt will be presented for reading evaluation.
  3. Kristen may lead you in vocal exercises.

Bring a positive attitude, these will be enjoyable!
