The mission of the Rochester Community Chorus is to enrich the cultural life of the community by providing its singers with opportunities to perform quality choral music under professional direction and by enhancing the lives of all through the resonant power of harmony and word.
We are the community choral ensemble in the area of Rochester, Michigan. If you would like to join us, please see the Membership page. Let us know how we can serve you.
Next on our concert agenda is a Christmas concert with the Rochester Symphony Orchestra and the Rochester College A Cappella Chorus. The concert is planned for December 12, 2014 at St. Andrew's in Rochester. We will also be singing for the community Good Friday Service on April 3, 2015 as well as preparing a concert for mid-May that will include lighter music for the Spring season. Our first rehearsal this semester will be on September 8 @ 7:30 pm in the theatre at Rochester College. We are contemplating a permanent move to St. Mary of the Hills Church on John R in Rochester Hills. Check the "This Week in Rehearsal" page for the latest details.
from the Melodious Accord newsletter, July 2002:
"No other art demands so persuasively that we dwell in this moment, right here, where space crosses time, in order to create something fleeting that we cannot make alone. Here is a positive addiction -- one that brings blessings rather than disease, and one that makes us appreciate and value those with whom and for whom we sing. We are most wonderfully human when we sing together."--Alice Parker
