The Kearsarge Chorale brings together area singers dedicated to the performance of great choral music. The Chorale, founded in 2009, continues to grow in stature and audience by presenting beautiful music in live performance to audiences in the New London area.
Kearsarge Chorale Background
A group of singers gathered in the fall of 2008 to prepare and perform a concert to honor the life and music of Ralph Vaughan Williams. After singing together for a few weeks, the group was enthusiastic to continue and formed the Chorale. We are a now a regional volunteer chorus based in New London with members from many Kearsarge-area towns; we welcome singers to join with us in the joy of singing. To date, our support comes from dues paid by singers, donations, grants, and ticket sales. Our concerts may be enhanced by professional instrumental ensembles and vocal soloists.
The Chorale performs two concerts each year, typically in November and April. Auditions for new singers are held in August and January.
As of 2009, Kearsarge Chorale is recognized by the State of New Hampshire as a not-for-profit corporation and is filed with the IRS as a 501(c)3 organization. We are governed by an advisory board consisting of seven board members and officers. The Chorale is affiliated with Colby-Sawyer College in New London, where it holds its rehearsals and many of its performances.
Membership in the Chorale is open to anyone who wishes to experience the joy of making great music and is willing to put in the time and effort to help perfect its performance. Weekly rehearsals are Monday evenings, 7-9 pm, with sectionals prior. An audition is required.
