Joanne Connolly, the Director of Con Tutti!, offers many gifts to the Seacoast. In addition to Con Tutti!, she directs Voices from the Heart, a 200-member all women’s chorus. With everything she does, she brings a bit of performer, a bit of whimsy, and a lot of passion. She talks about Con Tutti:
With Con Tutti I hoped to create a comfortable atmosphere where men and women can express themselves with singing and celebrate the seasons with multicultural music and myth. Con Tutti is an alternative chorus for men and women. There are no auditions, and music reading is not required… Just a desire to sing. We sing a range of seasonal multicultural music from many traditions. I call it “Con Tutti!”. I wanted a name that would mean including everyone, men and women, young and old, with mixed abilities. It is wonderful that in our group we have people who have never sung outside of their showers or cars, as well as seasoned professionals.
