We at Eastman Community Projects (ECP) are happy to announce that our Community Choir Project is going live, graduating from a Conceptual Project to a Live, Up -and-Running one. We are stoked!
We hatched the idea for a Community Choir sometime in February, measured early interest from social media postings, obtained an advisor (Ryan Keeling from the professional choir community, were lucky enough to attract a great Choir Director Benjamin Filippone, and visited numerous churches in the area, applying to and accepted by, the very nice people at The Swissvale Presbyterian Church where Pastor Melissa Morris and her staff, have gone out of their way to make us feel welcome.
Approximately 5 group auditions later, we have a healthy mix of great voices to move forward with, commencing with our first rehearsal on June 15th, from 7:00 — 9:00 PM. Now that we are moving forward, we plan to speed it up a bit, selecting a name for the choir within a week’s time, starting rehearsals, and quickly moving towards a first public appearance, guided by our awesome choir director, who has a great history of enabling the best of voices from his singers.
Stay tuned for more exciting news from ECP, and our many thanks to all who have auditioned, and those accepted into the choir. For individuals who were not selected, we encourage you to keep in touch, keep singing, and audition again at our next round of auditions in the future. We look forward to great rehearsals, performances, enjoyable and fulfilling times together in the near future.
