This time last year CCC was busy preparing to celebrate Beethoven's 250th birthday. And then along came COVID-19 and well, needless to say there was no performance. Dr. Hampton, undaunted by the challenges of choral singing during a pandemic, has been busy rehearsing the choir and preparing for an April 17 virtual concert featuring Beethoven's MASS in C Major. To add to the complexity of virtual choral singing, this work will be performed with an orchestra, no small feat. Like our last virtual concert, this work will be presented free of charge on YouTube. And as always, donations are appreciated. For details on registering on YouTube view our EVENTS page.
CCC's Songs of the Season a huge success
CCC's Virtual Songs of the Season concert took place December 12 via YouTube and exceeded expectations in every way. With over two thousand views, Dr. Hampton was thrilled that the concert was so well received. Mayor Lori Lightfoot and Chicago First Lady, Amy Eshleman provided the welcome to our virtual audience. Special guests, The Good Samaritans were excellent, as was every soloist. The choir's stellar performance reflected their hard work and persistence. Now on to the next virtual presentation, our Virtual Tribute to Beethoven, April 17, 2021.
Dr. Hampton teaches virtual rehearsal techniquese. It's easy.D
Dr. Keith Hampton, CCC's Artistic Director/ Founder, recently presented a webinar for the United Church of Christ Musicians Association (UCCMA) on virtual choir rehearsal techniques. Once the COVID-19 pandemic hit, Dr. Hampton continued rehearsing CCC via ZOOM. It was a challenging endeavor to be sure, but by the time the choir's summer break approached most of the singers didn't want to stop meeting.
Even singers who were shy about singing alone said they had gained confidence.
