CHOIR is an ongoing community singing group focused on learning and performing choral music by composers such as Arvo Pårt and Ola Gjeilo. Led by Jesse Mejia and accompanied by pianist Mary Sutton, we hold rehearsals on Sunday afternoons, working through difficult but rewarding compositions to build an adventurous repertoire. CHOIR provides sheet music, space and a focused learning environment for singers of all skill levels. We also seek out opportunities to perform in unusual contexts such as art installations or multimedia performance pieces. CHOIR is an experiment in musical pedagogy, a DIY community group and a contemporary music performance ensemble. CHOIR is supported in part by RACC in 2017.
