Call for singers!
Dear Messiah Chorus Members:
Our Soprano Soloist, Beth Johnson, and a few other members of the Messiah chorus are members of the Madison Chorale, which does 2 concerts per year—one for Christmas on Dec. 11 this year, and a spring concert in early May.  The Chorale has openings for several new members, 1 or 2 for these voice parts:  Alto I or II, Tenor I or II, and Bass or Baritone.  Rehearsals are Monday evenings at the Madison Arts Building on the square in downtown Madison (Rt. 528 and Rt. 84) across from the town park and pavilion, at 8:00 to 9:30.  If you would like to join the Chorale, please contact Jim Maxfield at:; or call him at 440-974-8418.  Betty Jean Green is the chorale director.  The chorale has between 18 and 24 singers and performs a wide range of both secular and religious music—some a cappella, most with piano.


Fall is coming quickly, so the committee wanted to remind everyone about the dress code for the Messiah Concert. 

Women should wear black shoes and a full length black skirt or slacks. No front or side slits are permissible.  A back kick slit is acceptable.  If you do not own a white blouse, you may want to purchase one now, as they are much harder to find once the winter clothes are in the stores.  White means white, not off-white or beige or ecru.  Anything not actually white doesn’t match the rest of the chorus and makes us look unprofessional.  If you must wear jewelry, it should be small, tasteful and not reflective.  Pearls or small, subtle beads look fine, but shiny stones and metal, etc. glare in photos and can be distracting to the audience.  Avoid dangling earrings.

Men should wear black shoes, black slacks and jacket with a white dress shirt and a dark monotone tie.  No Christmas ties or socks.

Now is a great time to make sure your outfit for the concert conforms to the descriptions above.  Remember, shopping at the last minute is rarely productive!
