"Marina Alexander has brought The Arcadian Chorale to a high performance level through meticulous preparation…. and intelligence in the interpretations... The polished phrasing and clear diction of the choir throughout the concert were a testament to her expertise in choral conducting and her solid musicianship."
|Asbury Park Press:||
"The Arcadian Chorale...celebrated its 10th Anniversary season... with a heart- pumping program, titled Anniversary Waltzes. Alexander is a first-rate conductor, and her leadership shows in the consistently warm and rich sound of the ensemble sharply focused vocal lines and precise articulation...a highly effective and emotional journey. The voices here were confident and soaring..."
Re: Carnegie Hall, May 2, 2008]....For Verdi's "Requiem" the smaller Arcadian Chorale and Richmond choral society [both] trained by Marina Alexander joined the St. Cecilia Chorus....From the hushed opening 'Requiem aeternam' it was apparent that a lot of care had gone into preparing this work. The clarity of diction here and throughout the work, the attention paid to detail, greatly enhanced the dramatic impact of the softer sections, perfectly balancing the visceral effect of the 'Dies Irae' choruses. Overall, the singing was precise, focused, and well-balanced.
NY Times: "..uniformly solid.." Classics Today:"..the Arcadian Chorale.. sang with great passion & accuracy
Does singing in a chorus make you healthier?
It appears to. And that's great news for the 29 million adults and children who sing in America's 250,000 professional, community, church, and school choruses, according to figures from Chorus America, a service organization.
It's not clear how much of the health benefit is due to hanging out with other people and how much to the artistic challenge, but a handful of studies suggest that, for whatever mix of reasons, choral singing is good for your health. Read more of this article from the Boston Globe.
It doesn't even matter if you can't sing well. Singing is a surefire way of feeling good
