Set sail on the U.S.S. American with Jonesborough Repertory Theatre’s season opener, Anything Goes. Romance, hijinks, disguises, and of course singing and dancing come to the JRT stage August 21 through September 13.

Civic Chorale to hold auditions for 2015-2016 season
Civic Chorale, the region’s leading independent auditioned choir, will hold
auditions for new members on Thursday, August 13, in the choir room of Munsey
Memorial United Methodist Church, at the corner of Roan and Market Streets in
Johnson City, where the group rehearses.
The 2015-2016 season includes a fall program of centered
around Hugo Distler’s Totentanz, a
musical setting of a medieval morality play. Our performance on October 25 (in English) will include actors along
with the singers of the Chorale. Other
music on the program will include composers Samuel Barber, J. S. Bach, Heinrich
Schütz, Frank Ticheli and others. On
December 19, the Choral will present our traditional Christmas concert. In March, we join with the Milligan College
Choir and Orchestra in singing the Stabat
Mater by Cecilia MacDowall, a living composer from Great Britain. The season will conclude by joining with the
Symphony of the Mountains and Voices of the Mountains for Randall Thompson’s Testament of Freedom and J. S. Bach’s Dona nobis pacem.
Chorale anticipates a few open positions in each voice part, with a special
interest in tenors and basses. Ideal
candidates are singers with good sight reading skills who love choral
music. Interested singers should contact
the conductor, David Hendricksen at (423) 638-0409 or by email at
<email@example.com> in order to schedule an audition
appointment time for August 13. Auditions are private and short (about 15 minutes), and involve singing
a familiar piece, sight reading, and some simple vocal exercises to check pitch
and dynamic range, control of vibrato and general vocal production.
The Civic Chorale was founded in 1973 by Robert LaPella with
a small group of invited singers and Jane LaPella as the gifted
accompanist. Over the years, the group
has grown to become the region’s premiere auditioned volunteer chorus. In addition to singing the standard choral
repertoire from Gregorian chant to modern compositions, the Chorale has
presented numerous world and regional premieres and frequently collaborated
with other music organizations in the region, including the Symphony of the
Mountains, the Johnson City Symphony Orchestra, and the East Tennessee
Since 1998, the Chorale has been led by
conductor David Hendricksen. Accompanists are Lisa Runner, piano, and David Runner, organ. For additional information, visit the Chorale
