Chorulus Pennsicus

This select choir consists of 12-20 members chosen by audition. The group was founded by Mistress Arianna of Wynthrope at Pennsic 41. Chorulus Pennsicus performs more challenging works in a small group format. It rehearses in 
a private camp from 4-5 (or 5:30) pm each day beginning on the middle Saturday of Pennsic. Chorulus Pennsicus performs more complex and demanding music than the full Pennsic Choir normally does. In addition, it's expected that Chorulus Pennsicus singers will come to Pennsic having already learned the music, so we can focus on polishing rather than learning parts.

At Pennsic 49, Chorulus Pennsicus will tentatively be performing Maria Magdalene from Anne Boleyn's Song Book, Hassler's  Cantate Domino a 8, and The Elves Dance by Bennett.

At Pennsic 49,  The Honorable Lady Siri Toivosdotter will be directing Chorulus Pennsicus. Siri has been teaching vocal music for 35 years, has directed the Known World Choir (Pennsic 42 and 46), directs the Pennsic Known World Recorder Ensemble and is one of the creators of the Choral Ball. She regularly directs Dance Band Pits at Pennsic (and Pentamere) and the Crystal Ball 2019. She teaches classes on Sight Reading and Recorder methods throughout the Middle Kingdom and beyond, and performs with a group called the Roaring Wastrels.
