"Singing with the Chorale has given me a creative outlet during the early years of motherhood, allowing me to pause the rhythms of life with little kids to do something that is just for fun, and to engage with the community in a meaningful way." — Hannah Hernick

Members (and prospective members), this page is for you! Rehearsals are held on Monday nights at 7:00 p.m. at the first Baptist Church in New London. The Chorale performs two concerts most years, one in May and one in November. Our Artistic Director, Alex Ager, provides both challenge and guidance for achievement and musical artistry. Our concerts are frequently enhanced by professional instrumental ensembles and vocal soloists.
Please downoad the singer letter for the upcoming session and contact us if you have questions.
Welcome back! Please print and fill out a registration form for the Spring session, even if you already completed one in the fall. If you don't have a printer, extra copies will be available at the first rehearsal. Please arrive at 6:30 pm on February 12. 2024 to register. Check your records! If you paid $100 for the full year, no new payment is due at this time. If you paid $60 in the fall, another $40 is due now. If you did not participate in the fall of 2023, $60 is due now. Students are not required to pay dues.
New members are welcome to join us at the beginning of each new session. Kearsarge Chorale is a non-auditioned, community choir, under the artistic direction of Alex Ager. Please check out our past performance programs and our Youtube videos to learn about the exciting and broad range of music we sing. While it is helpful to be able to read music, it isn't essential if you have experience with successfully learning choral literature by ear.
Please print the singer letter/registration form and bring it with you to the first rehearsal. If you don't have a printer, extra copies will be available at the first rehearsal. Please arrive at 6:30 pm on February 12. 2024 to register. If you would like someone to contact you prior to then, please let us know.
