The Danville Symphony Orchestra was founded in 1967 and is comprised of over sixty talented musicians led by Jeremy Swerling, Music Director and Conductor. We enrich the eastern Illinois and western Indiana communities with four concerts held in the Danville High School Auditorium and two youth concerts for area schools each year as well as the occasional special event.
The Danville Symphony Orchestra announced today that it is seeking candidates to fill 10 paid chorus positions for its concert of Sunday, December 14, 2014 titled “Joyful Sounds”.
The concert will feature choral music from “It’s a Wonderful Life”, “Five Sketches After Dickens”, two Disney suites, selections from “The Many Moods of Christmas” as well as the “Hallelujah Chorus” from Handel’s Messiah. The orchestra and symphony chorus will be joined by Danville High School’s Delegation. Section leader positions will be awarded to singers with an appropriate level of musicianship and experience.
Swerling commented “we are looking for musicians who can come to their first rehearsal being able to fluently sing the notes and serve as section leaders, providing musical leadership in rehearsals as well as strong vocal participation.” A complete set of dates and further details of the compensation and requirements will be made available upon request.
