Greetings family, friends, and fans of the University of Washington Chorale! Our singing at the opening of Ann Hamilton’s “A Common Sense” on October 11th at the Henry Art Gallery went wonderfully, with new singers arriving every 15 minutes to sing to the images of the animals and the beautiful clothing (made from animal furs, skins, and other animal products)–and many staying longer than their allotted 15 minutes to continue to explore the many galleries and experiment with the impact of song. Many thanks to all of our supporters who attended the event, and to Ann Hamilton for offering us this opportunity. This gallery will be open from 11-4 pm on Wednesday, Saturday, and Sunday, and 11-9 pm on Thursday and Friday, and will be open until April 26th, 2015. Find more information about the exhibit here.
The first on-stage performance by members of Chorale is happening on this Thursday, October 30th. The women of Chorale are joining the UW Symphony, conductor David Alexander Rahbee, and guest artist Jeff Fair onstage at Meany Hall to sing music from Felix Mendelssohn’s overture and incidental music from A Midsummer Night’s Dream, Op. 21 and 61. The concert starts at 7:30 pm, with ticket prices ranging from $10-$15. More information can be found here.
Also: our cookie dough fundraiser has officially begun! Speak to a member of Chorale to order a tub of Cougar Mountain cookie dough. Cookie dough can be ordered by Wednesday, November 5th, so act quickly! The tubs of cookie dough will be delivered to us and distributed to or picked up by you on November 19th and 20th, just in time for Thanksgiving!
