Pemigewasset Choral Society offers virtual music making

September 10, 2020
REGION — For 46 years, the Pemigewasset Choral Society has brought music to communities in Central New Hampshire and provided singing and instrumental opportunities for countless musicians. After a well-received December 2019 concert series in Gilford, Franklin and Plymouth featuring the Vivaldi Gloria, the Society was forced to cancel the spring 2020 concerts to protect both the chorus and our audiences during the COVID-19 Pandemic.

Concerts are still not possible for December 2020, but making music is more important than ever for the nearly 90 singers in the Pemi Chorus. Director Will Gunn and Board Chair Ann Nichols have announced that the Pemi Choral Society is providing the opportunity to safely gather, re-connect, share our love for music, and sing together this fall.

Chorus members will meet virtually via Zoom on Monday nights beginning Sept. 14. Rehearsals will include vocalizing, singing rounds and working on several pieces that have been selected for a future concert when singing together in front of an audience is again possible. Director Will Gunn will hold Zoom rehearsals for Sopranos and Altos from 7-7:45 p.m. and Tenors and Basses from 7:50-8:35 p.m. each Monday evening this fall.

The Chorus would also like to extend an opportunity for other members of our community to sing with us. Those interested can get more specific information at https://www.pemichoral.org/join-us.html.

The Pemigewasset Choral Society looks forward to performing before our wonderful live audiences when it is again safe to do so. In the meantime, we will keep our voices strong and invite all interested singers to join us.
