New Season for CAMP Chorus
The CAMP Rehoboth Chorus, a community choral group, is a program of the CAMP Rehoboth Community Center. The Chorus provides high-quality musical entertainment for audiences in Delaware. The CAMP Chorus reflects CAMP Rehoboth’s vision to “Create a More Positive Rehoboth” by reaching out to all and bringing the community together through the power of song.
The chorus began in 2009 with 26 members and is now 90 singers strong, young and old, gay and straight, the CAMP Chorus brings a variety of musical abilities and voices to the group. In order to maximize the talents of members, the chorus offers combinations of full chorus, ensembles, and solos in their shows. The repertoire consists primarily of American 20th and 21st Century popular music, with leadership from music and artistic director Doug Yetter and accompanist David Zipse, and “choralography” and production by Larry Rosen and Barry Bugg.
Concert themes and music are selected by Music Committee members in collaboration with the director in a fun, shared experience for the singers and audiences.
In addition to the full chorus’s annual concerts, a smaller ensemble of chorus members provides free outreach concerts to senior centers, assisted living facilities and other nonprofit venues. They have performed at local events such as the annual AIDS memorial service, the Rehoboth Art League, the Rehoboth Beach Farmers’ Market, Senator Tom Carper’s annual holiday party, the Rehoboth Beach Country Club, and the Rehoboth Concert Band ‘s holiday concert.
