The Keene Chorale


On to Hector Berlioz and Our December 8 Concert!

With our Summer Night Sing at the Opera behind us, we have geared up for Fall, and L’Enfance du Christ (The Childhood of Christ) by Hector Berlioz, which will be sung in English.

Rehearsals for our December 8 Concert began on Tuesday September 10, at the Keene Unitarian Universalist Church (KUUC), 69 Washington Street, Keene. Registration continues for our next two rehearsals, September 17 & 24 at 6:30 pm. Rehearsals are 7:00 – 9:00 pm. Dues are $40 per semester, and music for the Fall semester is $7. Our full rehearsal schedule is to the right →

Singing with The Keene Chorale is OPEN TO ALL
We are a welcoming non-auditioned chorus, and our members include singers with a wide range of musical and life experience, from high schoolers to octogenarians. It’s not unusual for folks who haven’t sung since high school or college, or who really just like to sing, to become part of our musical family. Not everyone comes to us reading music. As long as you can carry a tune and learn to stay on pitch, that’s fine with us. If you’re not sure if you are a soprano or alto, tenor or bass, we’ll help you figure it out.

We all begin each semester at the same place: the beginning!
As a new member you can expect to feel welcomed the first time you walk in the door. We know we have a (well deserved) reputation for musical excellence and exciting performances, but we do not consider ourselves elitist or exclusive. Performance excellence comes from our shared journey each semester, from the hard work (and fun) under the leadership of Music Director Cailin Marcel Manson. Along the way we learn quite a bit about our voices and the pieces we perform, and have a really good time doing it, starting with the first note of our warmup!
