From our Music Director, Paul Dankers: Start warming up those pipes for the New Year! – This Spring, Aspen Choral Society will be performing original works written by local celebrities (with international reputations) Mack Bailey & Ellen Stapenhorst. Their thoughtful, heart-felt writing style attracted my attention and drew me to the project of creating original arrangements for the choir to sing. This will be a unique and (hopefully) life changing experience for all who participate.

For your calendar, here are the dates to reserve:
January 17 – 6:30 PM Rehearsal
January 24 – 6:30 PM Rehearsal
January 31 – 6:30 PM Rehearsal
February 7 – 6:30 PM Rehearsal
February 14 – 6:30 PM Rehearsal

Please note that our rehearsals will be held at the El Jebel Community Center in the Eagle County Building. Please click on the link (above) for directions.

Your response is needed! Please contact Sue Wasienko (our new choral manager) with your intent to sing as well as what voice part you sing. (There is no need to RSVP regrets.) Due to the limited number of chairs at our rehearsal space, the first 45 people to e-mail Sue will not need to bring their own chair. After that, everybody else will need to bring their own chair or rehearse standing up. Thanks for your cooperation!

I look forward to digging in to this delightful repertoire that I know you will all enjoy as much as I have! Much love to each of you,

~Paul Dankers
Music Director, Aspen Choral Society
