Pass Chorale Needs New Singers! And an Accompanist!

The Pass Chorale, a community chorus serving the Pass area and surrounding communities, has begun rehearsals for their second major concert of the year, the Celebration of Christmas. The Chorale is inviting interested singers to come to a rehearsal and try us out!

The major work for Christmas is part of the Christmas Oratorio by Bach. This beautiful baroque music is a joy for singers and the orchestra as well. In addition there are several Christmas anthems including Caroling, Caroling by Al Burt, a Huron Carol with words translated from the original Huron language, a Scottish carol for chorus and oboe that mimics the sound of the bagpipe, a shape-note version of Hark the Herald Angels sing, and more!

We also need an accompanist, since Joan Frost, our wonderful accompanist for the last 5 years, retired. Interested singers and pianists can call or email director Ernest Siva for more information (951-849-4676,
