New Horizons Chorale Provides Holiday Delights
With the backdrop of the festively adorned Wintergarden at Brickstone by St. John’s, the Eastman School of Music sponsored New Horizons Chorale Group entertained a full house of residents and guests. With classic favorites like Silent Night and original arrangements of other holiday-themed musical pieces, the talented mix of male and female singers were a welcome entertainment program. There were even a few familiar faces in the group with some Brickstone residents serving as members.
The New Horizons Chorus is a class offered through the Eastman School of Music that runs like a rehearsal but includes regular lessons on vocal health, elements of music learning- sight-reading/singing, rhythm and notation study, ensemble balance and performance practices specific to the repertoire. Participants come with a range of experience. All adults are welcome as they learn from one another to develop skill as individuals and as an ensemble in a fun and supportive environment. Our repertoire spans the centuries from 16th century madrigals to Broadway tunes and arrangements of Queen and Coldplay songs.
