Who We Are. . .

The Choral Art Society is a South Shore group, founded in 1958, dedicated to the performance of all genres of choral music, from Renaissance to 21st century.

A non-auditioned chorus, the Society performs challenging music for the enrichment and education of its members and audiences.​ 

The Choral Art Society of the South Shore welcomes singers of all ages, with a wide range of musical experience. Though formal training in music is helpful, it is not a requirement to sing.  Come "sing with us" at open choral rehearsals on Tuesdays from 7:00 to 9:00PM at 

First Trinitarian Congregational Church,

381 Country Way, Scituate, MA.

CAS is a friendly, non-audition 50+ member SATB choir featuring singers from Scituate, Cohasset, Hull, Hingham, Norwell, Hanover, Marshfield, Kingston, and more. New members are always welcome and may sing at in one or both seasons. 

 

Come sing with us!!

Curious what kinds of music we sing?

 

Join Choral Art Society's 2020-2021 Virtual Season! 

We are excited to announce our "Fermata" season......in music, a "fermata" sign indicates

that you hold a note or a rest for a bit longer.

We are on hold, in that we cannot rehearse or perform live at this time, but we are going to keep our

choral community and music moving online.

This season the chorus will begin completely online on Zoom. 

Every other week,  beginning Tuesday, September 15, 2020 from 7-8:30pm

we will be rehearsing in Zoom sessions and will make a virtual choir video for a fabulous, live mini-concert online on Sunday December 13th at 4:00pm.

Rehearsals will provide an opportunity to practice musical skills, work on vocal technique, learn how a conductor approaches a piece, dig into some historical notes, and have some fun. 

Please join us in this opportunity to be together, sing and laugh, learn, and keep your voice in shape. 

You don't have to live on the South Shore to become a member of our virtual season! 

Email us to join by clicking the Get in Touch button below, fill out the form,

and you will be contacted by our membership chairperson with more details.

Have questions?

Here are the answers from Artistic Director & Conductor Danica A. Buckley

“How do we rehearse on Zoom? We can’t hear each other singing.”

 

That’s true – but you would be surprised how much you can learn singing alone and hearing more of yourself.

Does it feel strange? Yes! But you can get used to it and still exercise your vocal cords.

While you are singing your part, you are hearing it from me at the piano, either alone or played with other parts.

“I have heard of some software/sites that allow you to rehearse “live” (hearing everybody else).

Why aren’t we using those?”

 

Although latency (delay) issues can be reduced to some extent by various programs, using ethernet

rather than wireless, etc., they do have a learning curve and in some cases a cost,

and they do require certain computer power and microphones.

We will stick with Zoom for now, as is the standard for most community choruses all over the world.

“I keep hearing about virtual choirs. What does that mean?

What if I don’t sound good when I record?”

 

Virtual choirs are created from videos that an individual choir member records and sends to someone

who gathers them and edits the sound and puts the videos together in a template

to make the end video look like a choir singing together.

You will get clear directions and a lot of encouragement on how to make a virtual choir video.

You do not have to do one, but the end result, especially in a video in which you recognize your friends, is a joyful one.

“Some choirs are rehearsing masked, outside. Why aren’t we?”

 

There are still risks with this, and we are waiting for more research. We are choosing to operate very cautiously, to do the best we can to assure our members’ safety.
