Capital City Men’s Chorus presents Retrospectives – Capital City Men’s Chorus 30th Anniversary Fall Concert, September 22 – 23 in Rollins Studio Theatre
As the Capital City Men’s Chorus begins our 30th concert season, we look back at some of our favorite pieces of music: music that inspired, healed, entertained, and even helped to shape what we have become over the past 3 decades. Formed during the darkest days of the AIDS crisis when our main function was healing the grieving and shattered community, the chorus came to inspire other leaders to work for change, gain our Rights, and unite us through that most universal means of expression: Music. In looking back, we remember the pain of those bygone days, and also salute our triumphs and victories, and proclaim our hope for the future.
Interim Artistic Director Announced!
After reviewing many external candidates the board of the Capital City Men’s Chorus has selected it’s own Assistant Artistic Director, Mr. Bob Wolff, to guide the organization as we search for a new permanent Artistic Director.
Mr. Wolff joined the CCMC in its fourth season in 1992. His commitment to the mission and vision of the CCMC is demonstrated by his years of service:
- Board member – 1993-1994, 2004 – 2005
- Board president – 2005 – 2009
- Baritone section leader – 2006 – 2018
- Volunteer Assistant Conductor 2004 – 2015
- Assistant Artistic Director – 2015 – present
Two significant highlights of Bob’s tenure with the CCMC is that he occupied our podium for both the Season 20 and Season 25 anniversary spring concerts. It is only fitting that we entrust him with the baton for the beginning of our 30th season.
Professionally, Mr. Wolff has a B.S. in Music Therapy, is a certified special education teacher, and has worked for 30 years as a Registered Board Certified Music Therapist. Recently retired after 23 years with Austin ISD, Mr. Wolff is expanding his private music therapy practice.
As the CCMC continues its search for the right artistic director to lead us into our next 30 years, our fall performances will be more than ably led by this man who is thoroughly committed to the mission and values of the CCMC and to its artistic excellence.
