Member Perks

If you’ve been following the Blue Ridge Chorale website, you have surely noticed some big changes recently, both at chorale practice, and on our website. One of the changes we’re proudest of is a new feature for members of the chorale! In seasons past, members of the chorale have been provided with an audio CD of their practice tracks for the season, providing members the chance to practice their music at home, with their voice part singled out.

This season, we are excited to provide members the opportunity to access these practice tracks here, on our website. Members can simply click here, or on the link on the menu to the left, to visit our “Members Page.” Entering the password will allow members to access their practice tracks, by section. Members can stream the tracks directly from the audio player on the page, or download a zip file containing all of their section’s tracks. This feature will make it easy for members of the chorale to practice anywhere, from their home computer to on the go, using their mobile device!

Members, click here to find your practice tracks! (And if you need the password, please email Happy singing!

It’s time to sing!

We’ve had two great rehearsals already, and are gearing up for the third. With all of the beautiful new voices added to the chorale this season, the return of many talented singers, and the dedicated, creative direction of C. Alexander Smith, the Blue Ridge Chorale is starting a new season like never before!

Would you like to join us? New singers will be accepted through next week’s rehearsal, September 10.

New beginnings

The Blue Ridge Chorale is off to a great start this Fall 2018 season, if Monday night’s Open House serves as an indication. It was great to meet a lot of new members, and to see so many familiar faces. We are expecting to start our first rehearsal next week with at least fifty singers! Our new director, C. Alexander Smith, has selected some beautiful songs to celebrate the upcoming holiday season.

If you would like to come sing with us, we would be happy to have you; all voices are warmly welcomed (especially tenor and bass). If you are unable to make it to the first rehearsal, please don’t hesitate to come to the following rehearsal; new members will be accepted through the third rehearsal. You can save time at rehearsal by filling out your registration form online.

For those joining us next week for the first time, please be in your seats and ready to start rehearsal promptly at 6:30. We can’t wait to sing with you!
