A wonderful group of people who share the love of making music together!
What are we doing about this pandemic?
We’ve been heartbreakingly separated by the need to maintain physical distancing. We still knew it was extremely important to find ways to sing together…
…it was time to get creative! To find a way to sing together and social distance at the same time. The very act of singing can spread the virus, the way to counteract this is through finding imaginative ways to stay in contact and connected, and our group has come up with strategy after strategy for ways to do just that. To interact with one another online and in-person… but in a way that will keep us all healthy so we can stay safe until we can be together again. That is something we all hope will happen soon, but until it does… we’d like to share some of the ideas we have implemented with other singers who have also felt the loss of this important aspect of their lives.
One of the healthiest ways to deal with this pandemic is to sing. It lifts the spirit and unites people who have been separated too long by social distancing. It is a way to be part of a group and make a contribution as part of a social community of people who share something they all love… music! Each participant is focused on the same thing at the very same instant. That way we can still share the joy of being together and participating with people we know and care about. This gives us physical and mental strengths which help keep us connected, and while we still cannot sing side by side… we can still sing together.
Stay tuned and we will share some of our “secret sauce” … details about “Singin’ In The Cars” and how voices can be added one by one digitally and joined so they are singing simultaneously together once again. Hearing voices working together once again in harmony makes you feel… so good!
The Nashua Choral Society is a non-auditioned mixed chorus of approximately 50 adults from the greater Nashua, New Hampshire area and led by Music Director, Dr. Daniel Roihl. The chorus first met in 1965 and has been part of the New Hampshire music community since.
The purpose of the choir is to bring high-quality classical and contemporary choral music to the public. The chorus sings a bit of everything from Mozart’s Requiem to opera choruses, Handl’s Messiah, pop songs to show tunes.
The Chorus has performed at various community events such as the Nashua Holiday Stroll and Nashua Silver Knights Baseball games.
The chorus is supported by grants and generous donations from you, our audience. Thank you!
