To Rochester-Area Vocal Groups,

The Rochester Philharmonic Orchestra continues to celebrate its 90th Anniversary Season (2012-2013) with a variety of special events and diversified concerts. On Saturday, May 4th, 2013 the RPO will present a concert at Kodak Hall at Eastman Theatre sponsored by the City of Rochester that will feature a Community Chorus drawn from the ranks of local community choruses, church choirs and student vocal ensembles. Interested community vocalists are encouraged to apply directly to the RPO through the following online link:

We anticipate having room for close to 200 chorus members. The program though not finalized will include a combination of classical favorites such as Handel’s Hallelujah Chorus, Beethoven’s Ode to Joy and patriotic and popular standards such as Battle Hymn of the Republic, America the Beautiful and music by John Williams.

Rehearsal with the orchestra will occur on May 4th from 3:00-5:30 PM with concert to follow at 8:00 PM. There will be some limited chorus only rehearsals to be scheduled. Concert tickets will be available to the community for a recommended donation of $5 each. Chorus members will be accepted based on filling out vocal sections as needed, ability to read music, and personal choral experience. Recommendations from choral directors will also be considered.

If you have further questions you can contact Richard Decker (Artistic Administrator) at the RPO.
