A Choral Fanfare of Thanks

The Cardinal Chorale met again for the second day of our reunion. To show our appreciation for Coshocton Presbyterian Church hosting our weekend together, we performed a few our of pieces during the worship service. Shout to God, Give Us Hope, and Song of Farewell were sung better than they had ever been thanks to our rehearsal the day before. The Cardinal Chorale also collaborated with… Read more →

Reunited Once More

The Chorale has been waiting an excruciatingly long three weeks to see each other again since our last performance, so there were many hugs to go around as we all arrived at the Coshocton Presbyterian Church this afternoon. Though we were sad to have to cancel our concert last week and postpone our weekend together due to weather, the right… Read more →

Christmas Again!

The Cardinal Chorale is back together again! After a long five months apart, we met each other with many hugs and how-have-you-beens at Epiphany Lutheran Church in Pickerington. Seeing each other again was wonderful; we could all feel the love everyone has for this group. A brief warmup and rehearsal in the morning was followed by some sectional time. After… Read more →

That’s All for Now, Folks

A Friend in the Road

Oh, what a beautiful morning the 23rd Edition of the Cardinal Chorale experienced! We awoke bright and early for our final full-length day of Workshop.

Sometimes they are funny, and sometimes they are serious. Opus… Read more →

On the Fourth Day of Workshop…

On the fourth day of Workshop, the staff sang to us, four Christmas carols! Today, July 25th, is “Christmas in July.” To get to our breakfast tables, members of the Cardinal Chorale had to walk through a tunnel of staff members singing carols such as “We Wish You a Merry Christmas,” “Jingle Bells,” and “The 12 Days of Christmas.” Staff… Read more →

Ease On Down the Hills

Awake, awake! The Chorale arose early yet again to eat breakfast with their Opera. Many discussed their favorite moments from the day before; a popular favorite was the 22nd Chorale’s concert. We then made our way to Walter Hall to begin our day of rehearsal with a quick warm-up with the full group. Both facial and vocal warm-ups are important… Read more →

As We Are Walking in the Rain

Chorale members woke up bright and early this morning to prepare for our first performance at College Drive Presbyterian Church. Our first breakfast with our Opera was fun. Many Opera received their first daily challenge. Towards the beginning of the week, these usually include something along the lines of getting to know someone new. After a wonderful meal provided by… Read more →
