It is a real pleasure to be welcoming you, here, to the Rockville Chorus website. I am very proud of this organization and their work, and feel very honored to have been working with them as music director since the spring of 1991. This is a vibrant, dedicated musical organization, focused on developing a wide-range of musical genres and styles of choral music for the Rockville regional community each year.
Developed in the mid-1970s, this City-sponsored choral ensemble is comprised of approximately 65-80 adult members. Rehearsing Monday nights for almost 2 hours, the group works hard on polishing a program of music comprised of selections from the classical choral canon to the Broadway musical stage, as well as classical jazz arrangements to original compositions from contemporary composers.
We are a diverse group with a wide range of musical backgrounds. Some have been singing with the group longer than I have been with the chorus. Others can only sing with us for a season or two. Some come to us with extensive, professional careers in singing or musical academia, while others have singing experience limited to a 5th-grade pageant or their own private showers. We are brought together because of our love of music, however, and we are made stronger through our musical diversity.
As I said, it has been an honor and joy to work with the Rockville Chorus. If you are considering singing with a group, or would simply like more information about us, we would welcome the opportunity to talk with you further!
Many thanks…and keep on singing!!!
