The Chatham Chorale 2022-2023
Thank you for your interest in membership in the Chatham Chorale.
The Chatham Chorale is a community chorus of about 80 members, performing music of all types in various venues on Cape Cod. Our music director is Joseph Marchio, and our president is Deborah Mahaney.
As a Potential New Member, we invite you to sing with us for two or three rehearsals, and then to audition. If you decide to proceed with an audition, the audition music and other instructions will be provided.
Our regular rehearsals are on Thursday evenings, from 7 pm to 9 pm, at St. Peter’s Lutheran Church, 310 Route 137, Harwich, MA. Occasionally, there are additional rehearsals on another evening of the week, usually Mondays, to concentrate on specific repertoire. Members are permitted to miss up to two rehearsals for any one concert. Additional absences for illness or travel may be permitted with the approval of the music director. One or two rehearsals just before a performance are considered mandatory dress rehearsals.
Our concerts for the 2022-2023 Season are:
As Sunlight Fades! – Saturday, November 5, 2022
A Candlelight Christmas – Saturday, December 17 and Sunday, December 18, 2022
A Celtic Jubilee – Saturday, March 11 and Sunday, March 12, 2023
Coronation! – Saturday, April 29 and Sunday, April 30, 2023
America Sings: A Celebration of American Music – Saturday, June 3 and Sunday, June 4
We will also sing with the Cape Symphony in their annual Holiday on the Cape performancesDecember 2, 3 and 4 at Barnstable High School.
Members are encouraged to sing in all these performances, but we realize that each person has other activities and commitments. You are therefore allowed to choose the concerts in which you will participate.
The yearly membership fee for the Chatham Chorale is $160, payable after you successfully complete your audition. This fee applies no matter how many performances you sing during the year. However, the membership fee for new members joining between January and June is $80.
Please note: Due to the ongoing emergence of Covid variants, all participants must provide Proof of full Covid vaccination, including at least one booster. Masks are required to visit, audition, register, rehearse or perform with the Chatham Chorale.
