The Ambrose University Singers want YOU for the Fall 2017 term. Come sing with us. . .
The Ambrose University Singers is a mixed choral ensemble drawn from the Ambrose campus community. Participation in the choir offers you an undergraduate university course with 1.5 academic credit per semester. Students registering for the University Singers are encouraged to participate for both Fall and Winter terms (2017-2018) for a total of 3 credits. Students in ALL disciplines (music as well as non-music) are encouraged to sing in the choir as an option towards fulfilling fine arts requirements for their program. All first year students registered in a MUSIC PROGRAM (BMus, BA Music) are required to sing in the Ambrose University Singers for the first two terms of their program.
The choir meets once a week for rehearsal in Room G2195—Mondays from 3:00 to 5:30 PM (with a short break in the middle)—the equivalent of two 75-minute class periods.
There is no formal audition, though new choir members will be asked to give evidence within the first few rehearsals of minimum requirements—the ability to match pitch (sing in tune and learn a part) and a commitment to the rehearsal/performance schedule of the choir.
With a contractual agreement, a student may also opt to join the choir on a non-credit basis. Ambrose Seminary Students (as well as undergraduate students) may be admitted to the choir on this basis.
Some exciting plans for the Fall 2017 term will include the following
(subject to changes):
--Chapel performances at Ambrose University—celebrating the musical and seasonal worship events of the Fall 2017term
--Church performance/collaboration with a Calgary area church
--Collaboration with a Calgary-based choir for a combined choral performance on November 14, 2017—a celebration in music of 500 years since the beginning of the Reformation (the music of Martin Luther and others)
--Performance at the annual Ambrose Christmas Concert, Friday, December 1, 2017
If you are taking the choir for ensemble or fine arts credit, you may register now for Ambrose University Singers (MU 190-1, MU 290-1, MU 390-1, or MU 490-1—depending on the term you are entering. Come see us in the Music Department if you have further questions. Our first rehearsal will be on Monday, September 11, 2017 at 3:00 PM in Room G2195.
