Christmas in July, Part 3

So as your day has been filled with joy and wonder, with the fantastic music of CiJ-P1 and CiJ-P2, we’ve finally come to the Winter-slash-Christmas-slash-It’s-Really-Kind-of-a-Holiday-Even-If-You’re-Working concerts from 2010 and 2011. And really, this rounds out nearly ELEVEN HOURS of music from the Helena Chamber Singers, and we truly hope you’ve enjoyed your Christmas in July.

Christmas in July, Part 2

We continue our Winding Walk through a Winter Wonderland by presenting you the Helena Chamber Singer Christmas-slash-Holiday-slash-Just-Plain-Old-Winter concerts from 2006-2009. If you’ve been playing along, the music from CiJ-P1 should have gotten you to about noon, and this will polish off a good portion of your afternoon. And then, there’s part 3…

Christmas in July – Part 1

It’s the second most wonderful time of the year! You see, in Montana, we sometimes get snow even in the middle of summer, but even if that happens, it’s usually brief and surrounded by blessedly hot summer days that cool off into amazing summer nights. But who cares? It’s July 25th, so it’s time for Christmas in July. As a special gift, there are three parts to this showcase of every single Christmas concert that the Helena Chamber Singers have performed. You should just download the show and enjoy playing completely inappropriate yet totally safe for work music performed by the amazingly talented members of the Helena Chamber Singers.

Part 1 includes the Christmas-slash-winter concerts from 2001 – 2005. Enjoy!

May 2001 Concert

In May 2001, the Helena Chamber Singers had their second concert, and Kevin Hamm and Gayle Sheldon recap some of the wonderful pieces performed. This is the first of our summer review pieces because we wanted to remind you of pieces we’ve done in case you wanted to vote for them for our concert in Spring 2013. Enjoy!

Dress Rehearsal

Not that we were wearing anything special, but we’ve had our final rehearsal outside St. Paul’s and our Spring Concert, Folk Fantasia, is tomorrow. Coleen Smith joins Kevin Hamm as they talk about the music you can hear and a special concert next year that you get to help out with. Enjoy!

First Rehearsal

It’s our first podcast, and our director, Dr. Steven Michelson, talks with Tenor Kevin Hamm about two of the pieces the choir will be performing later this month. Enjoy some of the behind-the-scenes rehearsing and thinking that goes into our concerts.
