CAPE COD TIMES – Cape Cod Chorale (CCC) and Choral Art Society of the South Shore (CAS), two of eastern Massachusetts’ community choral ensembles, join forces this spring in honor of CCC’s 40th anniversary season in concert, performing “Mozart and Two Mendelssohns.”
The concert will be held at 4 p.m. Sunday, May 7, at Mashpee High School, 500 Old Barnstable Road. A day earlier, on May 6, there will be a 4 p.m. performance at Scituate Center for the Performing Arts, 606 Chief Justice Cushing Highway (Route 3A).
The combined choral ensemble is conducted by Danica A. Buckley, who conducts both choral groups. The concerts will feature professional vocal soloists Susan Consoli, soprano, Alexandra Dietrich, mezzo-soprano, Ethan Depuy, tenor, and Dana Whiteside, baritone, in addition to 110 voices and a full orchestra.
Scituate performance tickets are available at the door and at choralartsociety.org, and Mashpee performance tickets are available at the Cape Cod Chorale website. Tickets are $25 for adults and free for students 18 and younger. The chorale groups also participate in the Card to Culture Program, offering a $12.50 ticket to those with a WIC or Connector Care card.
Cape Cod Chorale rehearses Broadway benefit
Cape Cod Chorale starts rehearsals for its June concert on Monday, May 8. The group rehearses from 7-9 p.m. each Monday at First Church Sandwich, 136 Main St., Sandwich. The chorus is conducted by Artistic Director Danica A. Buckley, accompanied by pianist Cathy Bonnett.
The fundraising concert provides money for a scholarship for a music student and part of the concert proceeds will go to the Family Table Collaborative, which has provided, organizers said, 94,000 meals.
For those interested in singing, Cape Cod Chorale is non-auditioned, but the director may assist with vocal placement, and you do have to be able to carry a tune and learn and hold a part.
