LA GRANDE, Ore. – The Grande Ronde Community Choir will hold its first rehearsal for the coming season from 7-9 p.m. Thursday, Sept. 13 in Loso Hall, Room 123 on the EOU campus.
Singers of all ages and abilities are welcome to join. Cost is $20 per term and covers general operational expenses of the ensemble.
J. Michael Frasier, longtime choral director and educator, is beginning his fourth year as musical director. The accompanist is Lanetta Paul, adjunct music instructor, and Peter Wordelman, professor of music, is the assistant conductor.
Frasier said he strives to make the rehearsals and performances a balance of “fun, social interaction and quality music making.”
“Our fall concert series promises to be an exciting and diverse musical experience, so plan on joining us and becoming part of a great community music ensemble!” Frasier said.
The major undertaking for the choir will be when the group combines forces with the Grande Ronde Symphony Orchestra and its conductor, Leandro Espinosa for two performances of movements from “Requiem” by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart.
Wordelman will also assist in this endeavor, along with DeeAnn Sands and the Baker High School Bel Canto Choir, and Emily Callender and the Pendleton High School Choir.
The Community Choir will also be featured in the Choirs of the Valley Concert on Thursday, Oct. 11 as part of EOU’s Homecoming celebration, and the annual Holiday Music Festival concerts on Dec. 1-2.
For more information contact Frasier at 541-910-1149; 541-962-3463; or email@example.com.
