Joyful Sound is our summer mixed chorus, open to all who love to sing. Families are encouraged to participate with their children. Singers receive training in voice, musicianship, and performance from master conductor, Jan Pedersen Schiff. There are no audition requirements. This is a 10 week session. We understand you may miss a few rehearsals due to summer travel plans. A rehearsal CD of your voice part is provided to assist you with learning the music outside of the rehearsal time. There is a supervised play area for the children to retire to at 8:00 p.m. For full membership information, please click here.
Each summer, the musical selections are chosen according to a concert theme. This summer's theme is "Motown in Marin." It's a wonderfully fun filled program featuring: "I Heard It Through the Grapevine", "Dancing in the Street", "Sittin’ on the Dock of the Bay", "Stop in the Name of Love", "Ain’t No Mountain High Enough", etc. For the full concert program click here.
In past years, performances have included singing at the Marin County Fair and as the opening act for the Marin Shakespeare Summer Theatre. It’s important that we share our music with the community, so we will be performing for at least two retirement homes before presenting a concert for the general public. This afternoon performance is always followed by a picnic, provided by the singers for our audience.
