What it is...

We’re excited to offer another semester of Cambridge Common Voices, the neurodiverse music ensemble partnership between the Harvard Choruses and Lesley’s Threshold Program. ALL ABILITIES WELCOMED! Though I’ve been a bit behind in organizing our work for this fall, I’m writing to share some information for you with hopes that you might be interested in joining us this year!

1) FIRST REHEARSAL
Our first meeting will be on Sunday, September 15 in Holden Chapel (Harvard Yard) from 4:30-6:00pm.

2) FALL MEETING TIMES
Our rehearsals will take place on Sunday afternoons from 4:30p-6:00p from September 15 to December 1. Occasionally, we’ll plan some post-rehearsal dinner outings together — both in Harvard dining halls and in Harvard Square. We will meet each week this fall for a shorter period of time (90 minutes). If you’re a Patriots fan (I’m not — Go Steelers!), have no fear … the Pats only have one 4pm Sunday game during this time (yes, I checked!). =)

We will have two concerts this fall — one on Halloween evening (THU Oct 31) in Boston and a holiday concert on December 1st at Harvard. More info about this soon!
