I have been with the Chorus for many years. It draws together people of different backgrounds - some musical, some not - yet bringing together beautiful programs. It has been educational, friendly, and best of all, it is where I met a fellow tenor - my husband.

In my three years with the Chorus I have found them a dedicated, welcoming group and extremely interested in being involved in the community. This past year we did a free concert for the underserved with the Hill high school chorus (i.e. free tickets to various social service agencies). It was a great outreach idea and something I hope/expect the Chorus to continue. We also sang at a Branford Senior Housing center in order to bring our music to those who are less able to travel.

I have sung with the Greater New Haven Community Chorus for three years. I was unable to sing with them for the 2010 Holidays performance and so played audience. They were superb. It is an non -auditioned chorus, but the work and musical training available was well evident. This Spring I will be singing again with GNHCC. I was welcomed back as if I'd never been away, only slightly warmer that new members are greeted and encouraged to become part of the group. New music is presented for each performance, allowing us to share in many types of music, and receive the musical training to support these pieces. If you live in the greater New Haven area, it is well worth stopping in at a rehearsal to see if this community chorus, now 100 member, would interest you and enhance your life as it has many other people.

Having performed in 6 concerts with the Greater New Haven Community Chorus, I have experienced not only the joy of accomplishment, but the enthusiasm of the audience appreciating our addition to their holidays.

I would wish to be able to perform for more of the community and offer more musical training retreats than is possible now.

I have been singing with the Greater New Haven Community Chorus for many years. We are a non-audition chorus with so very much to offer. The music we learn is challenging, and the result is rewarding. Our concerts offer an exceptional musical experience to our audience, as well as to each and every chorister. Located in the heart of Yale University, we are surrounded by a multitude of cultural events, which we proudly count ourselves as part of. I encourage all who know music, listen to music, or love music to come try us out.

I have been singing with the Greater New Haven Community Chorus for over twenty years. To me, singing with a welcoming group of people who love music, and experiencing the joy of learning a new song and working on it until it becomes a beautiful sound is thrilling. Being exposed to a variety of music and learning about music from talented directors, as well as singing with people of all ages and from all walks of life is enriching. And contributing to the community through our concerts and our singing at area schools and nursing homes is rewarding.

New Haven has much to offer in terms of the arts, but I think the Greater New Haven Community Chorus, which is a non-auditioned chorus and open and welcoming to all , really performs a unique role. It allows anyone , regardless of talent, to participate in the creation of beautiful music.

I love to sing and have done so as a solo artist for many years. It is not until you sing with a choral group like GNHCC that you realize how powerful voices can be when singing together. You learn a true sense of community, following strong and talented leadership, learning how to be better than you were from their tutelage, sharing ideas, and listening to one another. The finished product is a beautiful and spectacular event that moves people right to their core being.

The GNHCC brings glorious music, exceptional harmony, showmanship and a genuine love of what they do to the New Haven community. The beautiful spectacle of the holiday concert, staged in the magnificent Battell Chapel, sent spirits soaring for listeners and performers alike.

I enjoy singing in a large group and expanding my knowlege of music. We really get the opportunity to grow and improve our voices with GNHCC. The most amazing thing is how interesting and friendly people are that are involved in the chorus. You get to meet people with so many different backgrounds and talents. The work that we put into singing a beautiful piece pays off. Everyone who attends our concerts can't wait for the next one!

Being a singer in the Greater New Haven Community Chorus is a wonderful and very rewarding experience. The chorus welcomes everybody who enjoys singing (no auditions) and building community is a true focus. The conductor Chris Clowdus has a remarkable skill of bringing this large group together and give their very best at every concert. The last concert in December 2010 was an amazing experience with Battell Chapel almost filled to the last seat. The space was filled with JOY. I personally very much like the outreach to the elderly and the schools and enjoy to sing at senior homes and with high school students like we did in December.

I have faithfully attended all of the Greater New Haven Community Chorus concerts for more than 5 years...and have been, without exception, always entertained, enchanted and invigorated by the caliber of their performances, and also by how they "live" the meaning of community. As a non-audition chorus, any and all with a strong interest in signing can join. They partner with other choral and educational groups to perform and share the gift of song with community members that might not otherwise be able to attend a performance. And every performance I have attended leaves me feeling fortunate for having been a part of such a great musical experience...the quality and professionalism of the chorus, their conductor, the many amazing soloists and talented accompanists always leave me looking forward to the next experience!
