From page A7 | July 18, 2013 |

The Davis Children’s Chorale is accepting new members for the 2013-14 season. The Chorale is a community chorus of aspiring young singers in third through sixth grades (Level 2) or seventh through ninth grades (Level 3). The Chorale presents several concerts each year as well as performs at various community events. Auditions are being held on Aug. 12 and 19 or by appointment.
In addition, there is a Level 1 class for singers in kindergarten to second game that will be directed by Rachel Kessler. This is an introductory class designed to teach basic singing skills through games and simple songs and serves as preparation for Levels 2 and 3. For more information, contact Kessler at 530-756-3807.
Tania Mannion has been hired as the new director. Mannion worked with the Chorale years ago as a Level 1 teacher and says she’s excited to be back as director.
For more information or to schedule an audition, contact Mannion at 530-632-9882 or tania.mannion@gmail.com.
For adults, there is the Davis Chorale. This auditioned group of about 60 singers is from the greater Davis area and under the direction of Alison Skinner. The Davis Chorale also is currently inviting interested singers to audition for the 2013-14 season. Basses are especially needed, but all interested singers are welcome.
The Chorale is slated for two performances this year.
On Nov. 16, the Chorale together with the Fremont Presbyterian Church Choir and the Westminster Presbyterian Church Choir, will join the Camellia Symphony in a performance of Beethoven’s Ninth Symphony at Fremont Presbyterian Church in Sacramento. Christian Baldini, the director of the UC Davis Symphony as well as of the Camellia Symphony, will conduct.
On Dec. 14, the Chorale will present Christmas in the Americas, accompanied by a small ensemble of instruments at the Brunelle Performance Hall at Davis High.
Contact Skinner for information and an appointment at 530-574-8419 or alison@davischorale.org.
Prospective singers and friends are invited to a membership brunch from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Aug. 17 to get to know choristers and members of the board at the house of Board President Don Deem, 3108 Evening Bay Place in Davis.
