Fall semester Aug 7 - Oct 23, 2019
CINNAGALS Women’s Chorus
Cheryl Shafer Moore, Music Director, Conductor
Alla Artemova, Accompanist
Women of all musical abilities come together to explore lighter choral repertoire spanning 500 years of glorious music: including the close harmony of the big band era, traditional folk song arrangements, and medieval repertoire. This is a community choir open to all who want to sing in harmony – however, previous choral experience and familiarity with sheet music will be helpful. There is an informal placement hearing at the first rehearsal: checking range, pitch matching, and singing a simple, familiar tune (like Happy Birthday). CinnaGals rehearse Wednesday evenings (7:15-9:45) in the Cinnabar Studio – in a congenial, nonjudgmental environment conducive to making joyful music together – and perform in the cozy environs of Petaluma’s Elim Lutheran Church. Previous choral experience useful but not required. Tuition is $140, but no one is turned away for lack of funds; work study and scholarships are available.
