What a fun season this was! We thoroughly enjoyed our sold out gospel holiday performance. A local church rented us over 100 choir robes to use as our gospel outfits, and when we tried to return them they said they didn’t want them back! We are now the proud owners of a whole bunch of choir robes.
It was wonderful to work with singers Bishop Mayfield and Britney Simpson on the Glory Hallelujah to the Newborn King concert with instrumentalists Brent Olstad on keyboard and Reed Bently on percussion.
We collaborated with the Rogue Valley Chorale’s Youth Choruses to produce A Festival of Choirs. It was a great opportunity to engage in some adult to youth mentorship. Our community was treated to a buffet of beautiful choral music, including Mozart’s Misa Brevis with chamber orchestra.
Our third concert of the season featured opera greats Joseph Meyers and Krista Wigle, along with several Chorale soloists.

Rest in Peace, John Leavens 4/19/1950-1/11/2017
Over the decades the Rogue Valley Chorale Association has lost singers young and old. We keep the memories as precious reminders of concerts sung, travels near and far, and hours of precious rehearsals. John Leavens passed away on January 11, 2017 after a battle with cancer. He remained positive and upbeat throughout and was an inspiration to all of us. Click here to see his memorial program.
