as part of a larger group such as a church choir 
or a community chorus. If so, you may fill out one reg-

Nym Cooke is the leading authority in the 
country, if not the world, on early American choral mu- 
sic. We will be using selections from his latest anthol- 
ogy  “American  Harmony.”   You  are  sure  to  learn 
something regardless of your level of education. You 
are also assured of having a great time doing it as Nym 
is a very energetic, dynamic, and competent director. 
He runs a fun rehearsal. And don't forget to bring a few 
friends to the show!!
