Communiversity Choir Observing 25 Years of Harmony

Communiversity Choir Looking for Singers to Celebrate 25 Years

This semester, the Kent State Salem Communiversity Choir will observe its 25th anniversary and is looking for vocalists to help celebrate this milestone.

Melissa Fucci, associate professor of music and choir director, wants to fill the stage at this year’s concert with new and veteran singers. “I’d really like to reach out to those who have been part of the choir over its 25 years, as well as new members,” she said. “We really want to make this the biggest group yet.”

The choir rehearses each Tuesday evening, 7-9 p.m., in the former library at the City Center. The first rehearsal is Aug. 30.

There are no auditions and the choir is open to students, faculty, staff and community members. It performs two concerts each academic year, one each semester.

“We have built some great community partnerships over the last few years and I hope to continue to make our Christmas concert a collaborative event,” Fucci said. “Last year, we included the Salem Storybook Museum, the State Support Team Region 5 Resource Center, the early childhood education students and the culmination of our campus drive for Toys for Tots.”

Last spring, members of the Communiversity Choir joined with the Kent State University choir and orchestra as they presented the German Requiem, by Johannes Brahms, in Cartwright Hall on the Kent Campus.

“Everyone is welcome to sing with us,” she said. “Everyone!”
