High Street and Clinton Heights Ave.  This is one block south of the intersection of High and North Broadway.  We will perform at Wesley Glen Retirement Community on Monday April 16 (7 pm) and at Calvary Bible Church on Sunday April 22 (2 pm).

Summer in the Park of Roses

Our annual summer concert will be Sunday August 14, 2016 at 7 pm in the Columbus Park of Roses as part of the Civitan Park of Roses Concert Series.  Rehearsals start Monday June 6 at Clinton Heights Lutheran Church, from 7:30 to 9:00 pm.  We will rehearse each Monday except for July 4 week when rehearsal will be Tuesday July 5.  It’s not too late to join!  We’re looking forward to singing the Beach Boys medley on a warm summer evening in the park, close to the shores of the Olentangy!  Not exactly Manhattan Beach but we’ll make the most of it!

CC CHOIR – Concert wrap up

Thanks everyone for what I consider one of our finest performances
in the 10+ year history of the Clintonville Community Choir!
We welcomed several new members this fall; you challenged
us old-timers and gave us incentive to step up our game!
If you thought this was fun, wait ’til our Spring
concert at Calvary Bible Church! Best wishes for the
holiday season. I look forward to seeing you all in February.

PS. All I want for Christmas is a choir secretary! 🙂

We’re set for April 17, 2016 Spring concert with rehearsals
starting Feb 8, 2016

Chichester Psalms performed by 1st UU choir

In case anyone is interested, below are links to the Chichester Psalms, as performed by the choir of the First Unitarian Universalist Church of Columbus in 1999. We were pretty good! 🙂

Rehearsal aids for Chichester Psalms

Here are two rehearsal aids which you might find useful for the Chichester Psalms. There is one “track” for each part (Bass 1, Bass 2, Tenor 1, Tenor 2, etc.) Each track plays that part with enough of the other parts/accompaniment/metronome in the background to let you hear how the part fits in.

Go to: http://www.novachorus.org/music-files/ and scroll down (way down!) to “Chichester Psalms. Bernstein”. For each section:

  • “Track 1” is Movement 1, Part 1 (i.e. Soprano 1)
  • “Track 2” is Movement 1, Part 2 (i.e. Soprano 2)

Click on the desired track to listen (and sing along).

The same thing is available in another format at:


This site has the advantage of letting you adjust the speed of playback and also has a track with all of the parts (labeled “Tutti”).

(Note: Both of the above worked fine on my Windows 7 PC. The first (but not the second) also worked on my iPad. Your mileage may vary!)
