Nina Stairs, a member of the Casper Civic Chorale, had this to say after the fall concert, Poems & Prayers.
"…the glory…of a dream
…”Poems and Prayers”…the songs we sang during Sunday’s concert are still sneaking their way into my day…and I love it! and what a joy it is being part of such a great group of dedicated, passionate, disciplined and talented, but also kind and servant-hearted. hard to believe I waited thirty yrs to once again be a part…sooo grateful some friends asked me last Christmas to re-join!
are you up for a vocal adventure? join us! we’d love to have you! our next season starts in February and we’ll be singing with two Wyoming choirs as part of our May performances!
the people you’ll meet, the vocal arrangements you’ll sing and the challenges you’ll overcome while learning the beautiful and inspiring songs our maestro selects… so good for the soul."

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!
