Chapter 6 to lead afternoon clinic

Wednesday, November 30th, 2016

The Brown County Civic Music Association welcomes 53 male vocal high school students and their directors to a clinic lead by the members of Chapter 6. This master workshop will take place the afternoon prior to the December 10 concert. The workshop will include a final rehearsal of Carolina In My Mind, which participants will have been working on for weeks in advance, to be performed the evening of the concert. BCCMA has not hosted educational outreach projects of this nature previously and is excited to engage young musicians. Thanks to the leadership of Sue McAllister, the BCCMA Educational Liaison, and her committee members Brandon Rockstroh and Michael Pufall for making this possible.

Save the date: 90th Anniversary Celebration

Wednesday, November 30th, 2016

The Brown County Civic Music Association will hold a 90th Anniversary celebration which will take place in conjunction with the Milwaukee Symphony Orchestra concert on April 29, 2017. The anniversary planning committee is working on special plans to commemorate the anniversary and asks members to save the date and watch e-notes mailings for details. Meanwhile, committee chair Rita Kilmer shares the following factoids from a 1927 news clipping:

Green Bay Press-Gazette, February 7, 1927:
“905 Members Signed Up In First Music Drive”

“The success of last week’s efforts assures high-class musical talent for Green Bay…”
Cost of membership was $5.00 for the first 3-concert series.
Concerts were held in the Columbus Club Auditorium.
