International Tour Chorus
Welcome aboard to our new International Tour Manager, Elana Vasi-Smith! Elana is working with Pat Hill (who has managed these tours since 1981) and the International Tour Committee to plan Cappella’s 2024 travel adventure, which will include Austria, Bavaria, and Switzerland.
A read-through and potluck are planned in late January to get to know the music and our fellow travelers. Weekly rehearsals for the Tour will begin in April 2024, followed by a Pre-Tour Concert in Madison, CT and European travel in late June 2024. Dr. Jeremy D. Milton, Director of Choral Music for Old Saybrook High School, will be this year’s International Tour Music Director, and the Tour Accompanist will be Anna Jedd.
Email Elana at firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like to learn more about this wonderful adventure. Even if you missed the August and September Information Meetings, you can still join the Tour Chorus – contact Elana to get all the details. Non-singing spouses/guests are also welcome to travel with the group!
The 2023 SummerSings Series was incredibly popular. What a fun way to keep the music going! Click on these links to see excerpts from each event:
Summer Vocal Workshop
Our Summer Vocal Workshop was also a great success! We made some new friends, reconnected with people we hadn’t seen in a while, learned a lot, sang a lot, and ate far too many cookies.
A good day all around!
