College Community Chorus – Students, alumni, staff, faculty, and community members join together to sing classical works alongside newly composed choral music and arrangements of traditional and popular songs, culminating in a performance in Mead Chapel. Students often note that this 90-voice chorus provides a place not only to sing and explore music together, but to make life-long friends with others from on- and off-campus, and to take a break and feel a sense of accomplishment from rehearsal to rehearsal leading up to our concerts!

As we prepare our annual Thanksgiving concert, we explore a mix of classical and contemporary music, including music by Brahms and Mendelssohn, and newer compositions by American composers Dan Forest (It is Good to Give Thanks) and Keith Hampton (his gospel/jazz setting of "This Little Light of Mine" entitled "True Light"). The featured work on our program is Lux Aeterna (Light Eternal) with its rich choral sounds by award-winning American composer Morten Lauridsen.

Join us for rehearsals – no auditions – on Sundays or Tuesdays at 7pm in Mead Chapel, beginning Tuesday, Sept. 10. The Chorus may also be taken for credit as MUSC0250C.  Email conductor Jeff Rehbach, rehbach@middlebury.edu for more information, or simply come to a rehearsal!
