Welcome to the all new HASTINGS CHOIRS webpage!
As part of the Hastings Choirs rebranding effort, we have new names for 3 of the High School Choirs!
Treble Chorale (SA) and Bass Chorale (TB)
Beginning Women's Ensemble and Men's Glee Club will take on new names as a representation of their paired nature and purpose. They will now be known as "Treble Chorale" and Bass Chorale," respectively. The word Chorale (pronounced ko-RAL or [kəˈral] ) is another word for choir, and the "treble" and "bass" designations indicate the voice groupings; Soprano and Alto voices for the former, and Tenor and Bass voices for the latter.
Both are non-auditioned ensembles and seek to welcome all to the world of singing.
The Latin word sonos, meaning "sounds," will become the new moniker for Select Women's Ensemble. The long name is Sonos Advanced Treble Ensemble, but "Sonos" will save some time. The purpose of this auditioned ensemble's purpose will be to bring a more specific and deeper consideration of the many music(s) of the world, hence the word "sounds."
Varsity Singers (SATB)
Varsity Singers will remain as such, being the longest standing naming tradition in the Hastings Choirs. They will continue to be an auditioned ensemble performing music from around the world, and across time.
