Northwest Choral Invites Prospective Members to Meet & Greet

If you previously sang in a chorus – high school, college or community group – and are now looking for a great activity in which to participate, the Northwest Choral Society (“NWCS”) invites you to a “Meet & Greet” on Tuesday, August 30.  The casual social event will be held between 7:30 and 9:00 p.m. at St. Martin’s Episcopal Church, 1095 Thacker St. (between Margaret St. and Jeannette St.), Des Plaines, IL.  
The evening will include welcoming prospective members, refreshments and a short video about the chorus.   In addition, join NWCS for a short group lesson presented by Jade Maze on an aspect of singing.  Ms. Maze is on the faculty of the Merit School of Music in Chicago.  She has studied at Northwestern University and Northeastern Illinois University, and she is a teaching artist for the Ravinia Music Festival.

For the 2016-17 performance season, the Northwest Choral Society will feature a Christmas concert on December 4 that includes the Bach Cantata No. 62 and traditional carols of the season, and a program on April 2, 2017 that includes Mendelssohn’s Hymn of Praise and Schubert’s Mass in G.   A June 3, 2017 concert will explore Music of the 70’s, including disco dancing, the Bee Gees, ABBA and Saturday Night Fever.  These concerts are performed in various venues throughout the suburbs.
