Casper Civic Chorale has some exciting things happening this fall!
Two members of our choir, Lila Olsen and Alicia Gardner, have gone above and beyond to make our choir better. To begin with, they take turns leading warm-up exercises for our rehearsals, teaching all of us to be better vocalists.
Lila has recorded tracks for each part for every song. This is allowing our singers to learn their parts more easily and it definitely shows during our rehearsals! She has also offered to help singers one-on-one with any songs that are challenging for them.
Alicia is offering "Boot Camp for Singers" to teach chorale members about music theory and music technique. They meet on Tuesdays before rehearsal at 6:00 PM.
A huge THANK YOU to these ladies for all they're doing for us!

Our fall concert, Celebrate the Joy - 50 Years of Making Music, was so appropriately named. What a celebration it was!
Not only did we get to share beautiful music with our Casper community, we had the great privilege of honoring our past directors, Wayne McIntire and Steve Grussendorf, along with our current director, David Branson. We were also able to thank our past and present accompanists, who are such an integral part of creating our joyful noise!
Several members of CCC had the opportunity to participate in the Wyoming Symphony Orchestra of Beethoven's 9th concert. CCC singers joined Casper College and other community members to add their voices to this piece to make a joyful noise!

The Casper Civic Chorale will be celebrating 50 years of music during their Fall Concert! The Casper Civic Chorale started in 1972 under the direction of Wayne McIntire. Wayne encouraged the people of Casper to join together in song for 40 years. His vision was to provide a place for lovers of music to sing, regardless of their experience. Auditions were not required and reading music was optional. The only important thing was the desire to raise your voice in song!
