UTD Reaching Out to Community Singers
RICHARDSON, Texas (Nov. 25, 2003) -- The University of Texas at Dallas (UTD), well known for its business, science and engineering excellence, will reach out to musically inclined members of the community in January by asking them to participate in the UTD Chorale under the direction of returning faculty member tenor Kim Childs.
Childs returns to UTD after a two-year hiatus and is reviving community involvement in the chorale.
The UTD Chorale, which meets Mondays from 7 to 9:45 p.m., performs twice a year at the university as part of the ongoing Rising Stars series and is designed to help students, as well as members of the community, enjoy and appreciate music through choral singing. The chorale's past performances have included diverse choral literature from the Baroque period to the 20 th century featuring compositions by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, Orlando di Lasso, Michael Praetorius, Antonio Vivaldi, Aaron Copland and John Rutter.
Auditions for community members will be held at the first Monday rehearsal, on Jan. 12 at 7 p.m. in the Rehearsal Hall (Room JO 1.216 of the Erik Jonsson Academic Center) on campus. All community members who participate in the chorale will be required to pay a $75 materials fee.
