BETHEL, Conn. — The Connecticut Choral Society received the Non-Profit of the Year award from the Bethel Chamber of Commerce at its annual Taste of Bethel event.
CCS President Jill Heidel accepted the honorary plaque on behalf of the ensemble.
The ensemble is inviting experienced singers of high school age and up to join for the fall season.
Singers should have an ability to sing in tune, to blend with other singers, and to read or be able to follow written choral music. Singers should be committed to attending rehearsals, learning music, and participating in an organization of people who love music and singing.
CCS sings a broad repertoire of classical and contemporary music. Musical plans for 2016-17 include Candlelight and Carols concerts (Dec. 9, 10, and 11), Beethoven’s Symphony No. 9 (April 22, with the Waterbury Symphony Orchestra), and two spring concerts (The Poet’s Quill) on May 21 and May 22.
In September, rehearsals are on Monday evenings, from 7:30 to 9:30 p.m. at Valley Presbyterian Church in Brookfield. Subsequent rehearsals will be at South Britain Congregational Church in Southbury.
