The Symphonic Chorale of SWFL has come out of the pandemic with a new name, Choral Artistry, to launch its second decade as an independent arts non-profit. It is launching its 10th Anniversary/Take2 (11th) season with a Summer Sing Festival on Tuesday, Aug. 31 from 7 to 9 pm.
The event invites the singing community back to Christmas 2020/Take2 to experience the holiday choral event we all missed last December.
“We believe the name Choral Artistry better conveys our vision, our mission, and the diversity of music we perform,” says CA’s artistic director Dr. Trent Brown. “We do so much more than symphonic music and we wanted our name to reflect our talent and are versatility,” he added.
All singers in the community are invited to join with Choral Artistry (without audition, of course) at Summer Sing to rehearse and sing a little Rutter, a little Handel, and of course, some popular holiday favorites and carol sing-alongs with our dynamic Artistic Director. What better way to “cool off” during the dog days of summer in SW Florida.
Christmas 2020/Take2 Summer Sing event on Tuesday, Aug. 31 is at Riverside Community Center, 3061 E. Riverside Drive in downtown Fort Myers from 7 – 9 p.m. Admission is free for both singers and audience members, but please register at www.ChoralArtistry.org/performances to sing or attend so they are prepared with enough music for everyone.
Auditions Open for All Voice Parts through September. After Summer Sing, Choral Artistry will begin rehearsals on Tuesday, Sept. 4 from 7 – 9:30 p.m. at Lamb of God Church in Estero for a performance of Joseph Haydn’s “The Creation” (in English) on Nov. 14 at Faith United Methodist Church in South Fort Myers. Audition information is available at www.ChoralArtistry.org/general-auditions
