Ann Arbor’s Out Loud Chorus is a non-auditioned community singing group that is comprised mainly of LGBTQ chorus members, and the 55-person group has just completed their first year of direction under their new conductor William Scott Walters. This year also marks the group’s return to the Arthur Miller Theatre’s stage after “many years.”
Now, the group is gearing up to showcase its Spring Concert there on both Saturday, May 11 and Sunday, May 12. The show’s theme will be Communication, “talk to me, baby.” And, for those who have not yet seen Walters’ conducting, it will be an opportunity to demonstrate his unique performance style.
Walters was a student of Jerry Blackstone at the University of Michigan’s Master of Music conducting program, as well as that of Robert Spano, Harry Bicket and Kenneth Kiesler. Walters has also instructed music in the Atlanta, Georgia, area before returning to Southeast Michigan.
In addition to its scheduled Spring Concert, the Out Loud Chorus will also be making an appearance at Ann Arbor Pride and the Ann Arbor Art Fair.
For those interested in joining the chorus, applications can be found online at olconline.org. New member nights are held in late January and September of each year and rehearsals are held every Monday night from 7 to 9:30 p.m.
The Spring Concert on Saturday, May 11 will be held from 8 to 10 p.m., and the Sunday, May 12 performance will be held from 8 to 10 p.m. The Arthur Miller Theatre is located at 1226 Murfin Ave., Ann Arbor. More information can be found online about upcoming performances and ticketing at olconline.org.
