From Betsy …
Good morning, dear friends,
I hope you and your loved ones are all safe and well in these strange and scary times.
Since my message to you last week, as you probably know, the Mayor made the decision that the Medford Public Schools will remain closed until at least April 6.
I miss you all(!) and I look forward to the time when it will be safe for all of us to be together again, and to resume the wonderful work you all began.
I was in touch with the great folks at Tufts Community Relations last week, and I can promise you that, when this crisis is over, we WILL have a concert!
In the meantime, take good care!
We have added audio files to aid you in rehearsing as we wait out the Covid-19 shutdown of our rehearsal space at the McGlynn Middle School.
They can all be found in the “Audio Files Are Here” tab above.
Greetings everyone, on this beautiful Monday morning!
Just a reminder that we will be continuing our rehearsals this Wednesday evening, March 11 – youth chorus at 6:15 and full chorale at 7 PM – in the third floor music room in the McGlynn middle school here in Medford. NEW MEMBERS ALWAYS WELCOME!
I am so enjoying working with all of you as we prepare for our spring concert, and I look forward to seeing you all on Wednesday evening!
Have a great couple of days!
Thanks so much,
Good Monday morning everyone!
I hope you’ve all been having a good week. Just a quick reminder that we are continuing our rehearsals this Wednesday evening March 4 (Youth Chorus at 6:15 PM and full chorale at 7 PM) in the third-floor music room in the McGlynn middle school.
I am very excited with the wonderful progress you’ve made so far this season…you are all sounding beautiful!
Have a great couple of days and I look forward to seeing you on Wednesday evening!
Thanks so much,
Good morning everyone on this beautiful day!
Hope you all had a great “vacation” week!
Just a quick reminder that we will be resuming rehearsals this Wednesday evening February 26 (youth chorus at 6:15 and full chorale at 7) in the third floor music room in the McGlynn middle school. NEW MEMBERS ALWAYS WELCOME!
I am so looking forward to seeing you all then and picking up where we left off … I’ve missed you!
Have a great couple of days and I’ll see you on Wednesday!
Happy Presidents’ Day everyone!
Just a quick reminder that because, as you know, this is school vacation week, there is NO REHEARSAL this Wednesday evening, February 19th, but I will look forward to seeing you all next Wednesday, February 26th (youth chorus at 6:15PM and full chorale at 7 PM), once again in the third floor music room at the McGlynn Middle School).
Enjoy this beautiful day, and have a wonderful week!
Rehearsals Underway for New Medford Community Chorale YOUTH Chorus!
Rehearsals have begun for the Medford Community Chorale’s newly formed Youth Chorus. Boys and girls in grades 3 and up began rehearsing on January 29th. The chorus, directed by Betsy Pesce and accompanied by Holly Zagaria, rehearses on Wednesday evenings at 6:15pm in the third floor music room in the McGlynn Middle School, and welcomes new members!
The group will be featured in the Medford Community Chorale’s spring concert, which is scheduled for Sunday, May 31st at 2pm in the Distler Concert Hall in the Granoff Music Center at Tufts University, at the corner of College Avenue and Talbot Avenue.
The group invites anyone who likes to sing – youth singers (grades 3 and up) and adult singers (high school and above) – to consider joining the Medford Community Chorale or Youth Chorus!
For further information, please contact Betsy Pesce, director of the chorale and youth chorus at 617-335-8155 or at email@example.com.
Good morning everyone! Thanks for another great rehearsal on Wednesday evening. I just wanted to give you a heads up that because of a prior scheduling conflict, we need to rehearse on the stage in the first floor theater at the McGlynn middle school this Wednesday evening, February 5th (youth chorus at 6:15 and full chorale at seven).
Just a reminder that both the full chorale (high school and up) and the youth chorus (grade 3 and up) always welcome new members!￼
Look forward to seeing you all on Wednesday evening!￼
