GREATER NEW HAVEN COMMUNITY CHORUS INC
February 27, 2011
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).

I attend most every concert. I did miss one, due to emergency surgery a few years ago.
Ways to make it better...
If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
I do not have any specific thoughts on the matter, except as voiced above about the venue.
