BLOOMFIELD, NJ — Do you enjoy singing and would like to be a part of an organization dedicated to enriching the lives of others through music? The Bloomfield Chorale is seeking all voices — soprano, alto, tenor and bass — for its spring 2018 season. Drop in at one of the chorale’s January rehearsals on Jan. 16, 23 or 30 to meet chorale members and learn about the group. Practice is in an informal atmosphere. The chorale welcomes all interested singers. Previous choral experience and an ability to read music are a plus, but not necessary.

Rehearsals are held on Tuesdays from 7:30 to 9:30 p.m. on the second floor of the Bloomfield Civic Center at 84 Broad St. in Bloomfield. The chorale is currently beginning to work on its June concert. Come and sit in and see what you think.

The Bloomfield Chorale, originally known as the Bloomfield Civic Chorus was organized in 1933 and is part of the Bloomfield Federation of Music. Since 2008 the chorale has been under the artistic direction of Ruth Hsu, a graduate of Bryn Mawr College with a masters of music from Westminster Choir College. The chorale’s group of volunteer singers of all ages from Bloomfield and surrounding towns performs a wide variety of music including folk, Americana, classical, pop, holiday, sacred, show tunes and opera. The chorale holds concerts in June and December as well as performs at other venues and community events.
