A Message From The President And GM

It's hard to believe, but the year we've been waiting for has finally arrived! So far, Cornell's Sesquicentennial has been even more exciting (and more busy) than we could have hoped. We had the honor of performing The Hill and the Alma Mater to Cornell's next President, Elizabeth Garrett, for the first time a few weeks ago. (And we just received a lovely thank you note from her at the office this week.) 

We're gearing up for a wonderful Homecoming weekend and Advisory Council meeting on October 19, and then Twilight is just around the corner on November 1! The theme of our program this year is "Beginnings," and our No Whining, No Flowers mission is by Lisa Bielawa, a Rome Prize winning composer. We are also looking forward to representing Cornell at the DC Sesquicentennial Celebration, launching our first California tour in 20 years over Spring Break, releasing a new Cornell Songs CD, and performing at the official Charter Day ceremony for the Sesquicentennial weekend. And did we mention we found time for a quick trip to Carnegie Hall in there?

Needless to say, it's a wonderful time to be a Chorus woman. It's also a great time to be an alumna, with so many events on the Hill to come back for! We hope to see a record number of you this year, either in our travels around the country or at home in Sage Chapel. Whether it's at Homecoming this weekend or Reunions next June, we encourage you to come experience the infectious joy of the 2015 year. If you're planning to attend a Chorus event, please let us know at president@chorus.cornell.edu or gm@chorus.cornell.edu! We can't wait to hear from you.

Here's to the next 150 years of Cornell, and of the Cornell Chorus.

With love,

Sara Birmingham '15, President

Chelsea Brite 15, General Manager
