Hello Cantabile and Ragazzi Families!
We are excited to invite Cantabile and Ragazzi singers to sing with our Intergenerational Choir at the Capitol Lakes Retirement Community
. We had the amazing opportunity to sing together at our winter concert and hope you will consider joining us for another wonderful shared music experience this session.
The vision for this project is to bring together the young singers of Madison Youth Choirs with the residents of Capitol Lakes to create a unique, innovative musical ensemble that benefits from blending voices with a wide range of life experiences. Through this pilot program, which is supported in part by the Madison Community Foundation, we hope to demonstrate that creative expression is vital at every age and encourage further collaboration between artists of different generations.
Interested Cantabile and Ragazzi singers will attend three evening rehearsals and a special culminating performance with the Capitol Lakes residents:
- Wednesday, February 24, 6pm-7pm in Capitol Lakes Grand Hall
- Thursday, March 3, 6pm-7pm in Capitol Lakes Health Center Auditorium
- Wednesday, March 9, 6pm-7pm in Capitol Lakes Grand Hall
- Saturday, March 12, 6pm warm up, 7pm performance, Grand Hall
(The performance is free and open to the public.)
IMPORTANT: Please let Lisa Kjentvet
know if you are able to participate in this special opportunity by Monday, February 1. Simply reply to this email if you are interested and available. Service hours are available to singers and repertoire includes everything from Purcell and Billings to Bob Dylan.
