GMCC Virtual Events

The Greater Manassas Children’s Choir Invites You to Join Us for Our Fall 2020 VIRTUAL Segment via ZOOM!

Program Details

Who?

Singers in grades 2-4 are invited to join the VIRTUAL Younger Choir with Mrs. Susan Dommer, Artistic Director and Mrs. Patricia DiGiovine, Accompanist.

Singers in grades 5-8 are invited to join the VIRTUAL Older Choir with Mrs. Becky Verner, Artistic Director and Mrs. Kimberley Hill, Accompanist.

Families with more than one child are encouraged to have siblings participate.  Also, invite your family and friends to participate in this amazing opportunity!

What?

Learn songs and attend weekly rehearsals with the GMCC via Zoom.  Singers will receive scanned music (sent via email) and will be able to listen to the songs to help with the learning process.  The virtual concert will include group songs and feature solos by the children in the GMCC.

Singers will record themselves and send audio/video files to be included in a virtual concert that will be made public in mid-December for families, friends and patrons to enjoy.  During the registration process, parents will give consent to have their child/children photographed and their audio/video submission included in the GMCC’s virtual concert that will be aired online and through social media in December.

Zoom links, meeting IDs and passwords will be sent via email to each registered singer to gain access to the weekly virtual rehearsals.

This virtual program was created to accommodate our returning singers and to welcome new singers during these unprecedented times.  Our hope is to resume to our normal in-person GMCC program in January of 2021.

When?

Rehearsals will be held on each Thursday evening starting on September 24, 2020 through December 3, 2020 (no rehearsal on November 26th for Thanksgiving).  This program includes a total of ten weekly virtual rehearsals on September 24, October 1, 8, 15, 22, 29, November 5, 12, 19, and December 3.

  • VIRTUAL Younger Choir (grades 2-4) rehearsal time is 6:00-6:35 p.m. (35 minutes)
  • VIRTUAL Older Choir (grades 5-8) rehearsal time is 6:45-7:30 p.m. (45 minutes)

Where?

Singers from our local area (Manassas, Manassas City, Manassas Park, Bristow, Gainesville, Haymarket, Warrenton, Woodbridge, Dumfries, Centreville, Fairfax, etc.) are all invited to join us.  We also welcome singers from other areas and even from different states!

All singers in grades 2-8 are welcome to join us and participate because we are VIRTUAL!  Your child/children can participate from the comfort of your home!

Why?

Does your child enjoy singing?  We would love to have him/her sing with us!

Be an integral part of the GMCC’s 6th Year!

Established by the Manassas Chorale, we offer children the opportunity to sing with professional musicians who want to share their love of music with the younger generations.  It is our hope to enhance and provide further educational and performance opportunities for children who love to sing.
