Thrive Community Choir | Fall 2019

We’re excited to be launching the Fall season of the Thrive Community Choir!

If you love to sing, if you’ve been inspired by the Thrive Choir and want to sing in an ensemble, if you want more Thrive songs in your life...join the Thrive Community Choir for its second season.

WHAT

The Thrive Community Choir is creating a world of love and belonging through the power of singing. Participating in the choir is an opportunity to:

- Be in deeper community with Thrive members & kindred folk
- Explore your singing voice as a reflection and expression of yourself
- Connect and contribute to an accepting and non-judgemental space
- Improve your vocal technique and musical knowledge
- Learn and improve your singing in harmony
- Give voice to the songs and messages our world is craving
- Keep the vocal traditions alive
- Offer songs in service of our community and your wellbeing

We’ll be singing a collection of songs in 3 and 4 part harmony. Some will be community songs you may remember from Thrive Sundays, some will be new arrangements made specifically for our choir, and some will come from songs you suggest and love.

The Thrive Community Choir will collaborate with the Thrive Choir but is a separate ensemble. The only audition is passion and commitment. All are welcome.

We’re looking for individuals who are passionate about singing and who can commit to attending at least 75% of the rehearsal dates.
