Purdue University Northwest (PNW) is seeking singers in the community to join the new University Choir by coming to an open rehearsal on the Hammond Campus from 3:30 to 5:30 p.m., Wednesday, Oct. 2 in the YJean Chambers Hall on the third floor of the Student Union & Library.
Jenne Carey, continuing lecturer in music at PNW, said that creating this new choir will allow the community to come together and embrace the love of music.
“This idea came with the hope to build an interest in music among the community and to build up the music program at Purdue Northwest,” said Carey. “Music brings communities together and has a strong impact.”
Purdue Northwest students, faculty, staff and alumni are invited to audition for the Vocal Company, a separate and smaller group at the university, after the open rehearsal for the University Choir.
“The Vocal Company is an amazing way for students, faculty, staff and alumni to come together and create music,” Carey said.
Rehearsals for the University Choir will take place from 3:30 to 4:30 p.m. Mondays and Wednesdays and the Vocal Company will rehearse from 4:30 to 5:30 p.m. Mondays and Wednesdays. Both choirs will perform a holiday concert on Monday, Dec. 9.
Anyone who is interested in participating or has questions can email Carey at email@example.com.
- “If you have a love for music, you will be perfect. Come and bring a friend,” Carey said.
