Fantastic chorus - great for the community! The material they do is challenging, but they work extremely hard and in the end it shows.

I have attended a few of the Greater New Haven Community Chorus concerts and they are always well executed. The music is interesting and the performance space beautiful. The intern is darn cute! And their quilts are lovely.

I have been a member of GNHCC when I lived in the area, and have also attended concerts as an audience member. There is a lot of talent there, especially for a non-audition choir. The membership represents the diverse community of New Haven area. The music is well-selected and very enjoyable. Also not easy...the choir director and members work hard and always pull off a beautiful concert.

I have sung in the chorus for a few years. The people are very welcoming. I don't have a "soloist" voice and it is great to have a non-audition chorus where you can improve your singing and sing complex music but is also large enough that you don't have to feel that you need to be completely perfect or have a beautiful voice - a solid chorus voice is appreciated too.

I am proud of the chorus for trying to be more community minded. I thought our free concert for the "underserved" was a great idea. Even though the weather did not cooperate, I hope we do it again.

The music is always interesting and challenging. I would like a little more time hearing my part's notes but overall I think the director has a good balance with his conducting and definitely pushes us to be better.

I have been attending GNHCC concerts for about 40+ years, as a supporter of my sister Kathy Traub, a long-time member of the chorus, and active person with multiple roles in the organization. I personally enjoy most of the repertoire presented by the group. I prefer classical music, but I also like a fairly wide variety of popular musical numbers, e.g., South Pacific, Cats, Sound of Music, etc., as well as folk, gospel, ethnic, and some jazz. The one concert that stands out in my memory was one featuring Italian Opera and Neapolitan music, perhaps ten or so years ago. I always enjoy the December concert, with many offerings of the Christmas season. As far as the venue is concerned, Battell Chapel has very good acoustics, but parking and steep outer steps are problems for many of us who are beginning to be affected by physical betrayals of joints and other ailments. I hope the chorus could find an easily accessed concert setting, perhaps a city or university auditorium to hold both a growing chorus and those who wish to be supporters (without having to worry about steps and parking).

My story is simply that I have been attending the concerts of the Greater New Haven Community Chorus for several years and have enjoyed their performances immensely! They focus on world music which is delightful and their membership is reflective of the diversity found in New Haven.
Their
sound is exceptional and a joy to listen to for those of us benefiting from their very hard work. I also know that the chorus provides an important community and social network for its members.
