Carol Anne Parkinson

Choir Director


June 4 - July 7, 2018

As founding director of the Nova Voce Choral Society, Carol Anne is immensely qualified to lead our Festival  Choir.  Her joy of music brings out the best of these Valley singers who each year eagerly anticipate the opportunity to sing with CYMC’s chamber orchestra.

The Festival Choir invites singers from all of the Valley’s many choirs.   It is a non-auditioned group and places in it fill up quickly. You can register as a quartet of all four voices and save on registration fees.

This year the CYMC Festival Choir focus piece will be the Missa brevis Sancti Joannis de Deo, by Haydn.

The Missa brevis Sancti Joannis de Deo, Hob. XXII:7, Novello 8, is a mass in B-flat major by Joseph Haydn. The missa brevis(short mass) was written around 1775 for the order of the Barmherzige Brüder (Brothers Hospitallers) in Eisenstadt, whose patron saint was John of God. Scored modestly for soprano, four-part mixed choir, two violins, organ and bass, it is known as the Kleine Orgelsolomesse (Little Organ Mass) due to an extended organ solo in the Benedictus movement.
