Review for Greater New Haven Community Chorus Inc, New Haven, CT, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

The GNHCC was a wonderful find for me. I wanted to sing, but not audition, as I haven't been in a chorus for decades. So many members welcomed me very warmly!

I was somewhat intimidated at the thought of singing Vivaldi's Gloria and parts of Handel's Messiah, as I don't read music and it all seemed quite difficult. However, the director, Chris Clowdus really goes out of his way to help us learn many of the basics of reading music while we're rehearsing.

I was delighted at what I learned, as well as being able to perform this beautiful music not only for the paying public, but for other groups as a community service to spread some holiday cheer. It was a very proud moment having family and friends attend the public concert, and I can happily report that they all enjoyed it very much. The GNHCC is an amazing organization!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

Learning to sing great music, making the acquaintance of a great group of people, and giving back to the community with free concerts.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Get it more grants so we could provide more community service.

Role:  General Member of the Public & I sang in the December 2010 GNHCC Holiday Concert.
