Oratorio Chorale to hold 'open rehearsal' for possible new singers

The Oratorio Chorale invites singers to join the group in an open rehearsal on Sunday, Nov. 4. from 6 to 9 p.m. at Mid Coast Presbyterian Church, 84 Main St., Topsham.

This season, the chorale is rehearsing for concerts on Nov. 17 and 18, which will include Schubert’s Mass #6 in E flat, Mozart’s "Misericordias Domini," "Sancta Maria," "Ave Verum Corpus" and "Eine Kleine Nachtmusik."

The open rehearsal gives people who are interested in joining the Oratorio Chorale the opportunity to learn more about the group, and to obtain information about auditions for the 2012-2013 season.

The Oratorio Chorale, an auditioned chorus of about 40 singers, performs three programs a year at venues in Topsham, Bath, Brunswick, Freeport, Portland and Yarmouth. Singers in the chorale come from 20 different communities in the mid-coast area.

For more information about the open rehearsal, call 329-5708. To learn more about the Chorale and its programs, visit www.oratoriochorale.org.
