Love to sing?
Whether you’re a life-long choir member or new to reading music, we’d love to have you! DCS welcomes all community members in high-school or older who are interested in choral singing without audition. Our Youth Chorale welcomes students in grades 3 – 8.
Fall rehearsals begin on Tuesday, September 10, 2019 at 7 p.m., with registration from 6 – 7. Spring rehearsals begin on Tuesday, January 7, 2020 at 7 p.m., with registration from 6 – 7. (Singers may register any of the first 3 weeks of rehearsal.) Rehearsals take place at Wesley United Methodist Church (209 S. State St, Dover). Our registration fee for each semester (fall or spring) is $40. (High school and college students: only $15. Wesley College students: no dues, but see Dr. Wilson to register.)
New to DCS? Curious but unsure? Please join us for our Open House on September 3 also at WUMC at 7pm. Our open house events provide an opportunity to meet our director, peek at the upcoming music, and enjoy social time with our choir members! There is no cost to attend! (In January, you’re welcome to come to our first rehearsal to sit-in/sing-along, then register at the second or third.)
Realms of Glory – Dec 2019
This fall, our holiday concert will feature Mendelssohn’s Christus; Christmas Day by Gustav Holst; and other festive works. DCS is excited to share this concert on December 15, 2019 at the Dover High School. We will again work under the direction of Dr. James Wilson and be joined by the Delaware Youth Chorale, directed by Heather Swartzentruber. We will be joined by a small orchestra of musicians from central Delaware with Amos Fayette as our concertmaster.
Elijah – Spring 2020
In spring 2020, we will present Elijah by Felix Mendelssohn. For this oratorio, DCS and DYC will be joined on stage by a full orchestra under the direction of Dr. James Wilson and with concertmaster, Eliezer Gutman. Our orchestra will include professionals from the Delaware Symphony and Newark Symphony orchestras and other regional musicians.
