Women’s Choir Invites Singers for 2014-15 Season!

 All women in high school and above who like to sing are invited to attend a rehearsal with Bella Voce, the women’s choir of Children’s Choir of Chico.  Under the direction of Susan Tevis, these singers, both experienced and new to choral singing, develop their vocal skills while rehearsing and performing music in many styles and languages. The singers of Bella Voce share a common passion: an intense love of singing and performing a variety of music with a high level of artistry.

Experienced and inexperienced singers are invited to join together for the common goal of singing beautiful, sensitive, and exciting music.  2014-15 performances will include Glorious Sounds of the Season (CSU Chico) and CCOC Fall & Spring Concerts.   Some members of Bella Voce will also undertake a European Concert Tour with other local singers – from Prague to Salzburg to Vienna – in July 2015!

If you love to sing, come to the first rehearsal of 2014-15 on Tuesday, August 26, from 6:00-7:45pm at the CCOC rehearsal space.   Invite a friend and come!  For more information contact Children’s Choir of Chico.

The original choir has expanded over the years to five choirs, including music experiences for early childhood and adult women.
