RISE Chorales announces Fall Kick Off
RISE Chorales, a new Savannah-based choral organization, is accepting new singers for its Young Women’s Chorale for the fall season.
This unique new choir offers high-school women the choice of date and location to rehearse, and additional opportunities to sing, socialize and serve.
“We wanted to create a choir flexible enough to meet the needs of our singers,” comments Emily Williams Burch, Founder and Artistic Director. “We’re thrilled to be able to offer a Monday afternoon rehearsal for Ardsley Park singers, and a Tuesday afternoon rehearsal for singers on the islands,” she continued.
With a commitment to sing, socialize and serve, RISE Savannah’s Young Women’s Chorale has partnered with Girls on the Run, and will volunteer — and sing — at a number of events throughout the year.
“We recognize high school students are busy with a variety of activities, so we’ve designed a choir program that allows them to participate as much as they want,” comments Cuffy Sullivan, RISE Director of Operations. In addition to the flexibility of rehearsal date and location, high school women can choose to register by the semester or by the season.
The Young Women’s Chorale will kick off with an optional retreat August 20-21, and rehearsals start August 22 (Ardsley Park) and August 23 (Wilmington Island).
In addition to its Young Women’s Chorale, RISE is also offering four quarterly workshops for singers of all ages, with topics such as All State or audition preparation, or, just singing for fun.

RISE Chorales is supported in part by a grant from the Savannah Friends of Music, and is a community collaborator with the Savannah VOICE Festival.
