Creating Virtual Moments - A Note from Our President
Greetings and thank you to everyone who has so generously donated to our organization! Your support means so much to us, especially during this unique time in our country.
I hope you are enjoying the virtual performances by our Chorale. They represent a great deal of time by each choir member and, especially, Dr. Hacker. Dr. Hacker records each voice part individually and each choir member, in turn, learns their voice part and then records their voice alone along with the accompaniment track. These are then sent to the director who seams all the voices and accompaniment together to sound like the recording was made in one take!
It is an incredible amount of work for approximately 3-4 minutes of performance. Congratulations to the Chorale, Dr. Hacker, Dennis Clements, Sharon Keffer, and tech-savvy members like Dennis Clements and Peter Hannah for making this look so easy!!!!
Again, thank you for your continued support! We look forward to the day that we can return to live concerts.
|More about The Chorale...
Things may look (and sound) a little different, but we think you will enjoy what we have in store.
The Huntsville Master Chorale is conducting our 2020-21 concert year with virtual auditions and online rehearsals. We are featuring a series of virtual performances, bringing beautiful choral music right into your living room. And our annual Composition Contest is going on as planned, but this year we are opening it up to participants across the US and Canada. The winner gets the $1,000 prize and The Chorale will perform the winning piece in an upcoming concert.
We hope to be performing live in the spring, but our number one priority is to keep both our singers and audiences safe. We will reevaluate in the coming months, but our fervent hope is to celebrate 2021 with big band music at Mosaic of Love and a final concert in May. However, if we have learned anything recently, it is to remain flexible and creative. Stay tuned...
In the meantime, enjoy our latest offering, A Song of Hope and Peace, written by Gertrude San Souci (1873-1913) with words by Edward Lockton (1876-1940).
