The Falmouth Chorale Board is pleased to announce that Dr. Andrew Welch will be our Guest Conductor for both our December and May concerts. Andrew is a highly skilled musician and conductor. Andrew received his Bachelor’s degree from American University, and both his Master’s and Doctoral degrees in various aspects of music from the University of Maryland. He has experience with musical groups both locally and in the Washington, DC area. His references were outstanding and referred to Andrew as “inspiring” and “brilliant, yet wears his talents lightly.” During his interview, he was noted to be very thoughtful, well prepared and had interesting insights into the rehearsal process and time management. His demeanor and style seem to be a great fit for our group. Andrew is excited at this new opportunity and he and Krishan are working together to develop the repertoire for the two concerts. We are looking forward to his direction later this season.
As our 58th season begins the Falmouth Chorale looks forward, with great anticipation, to singing together and we are eager to resume our concert schedule of four performances throughout the year. This season will feature concerts led by Artistic Director Dr. Krishan Oberoi as well as special guest conductors. Please check our Events page at https://falmouthchorale.org/events for updates to our concert programs. We are excited to see you all again soon!.
NOTE: The Falmouth Chorale requires that all audience members wear a mask covering their nose and mouth.
Audience seating will start at least 15 feet from the performers.

Congratulations To Max Gorell
Max Gorell, a senior at Falmouth High School, is this year’s recipient of the Falmouth Chorale’s Frederick Johnson Music Scholarship. This award, now in its 14th year, has the dual purpose of supporting the higher education goals of Upper Cape music students and of honoring Frederick Johnson, a long-time Falmouth music educator who directed the Falmouth Chorale for eighteen years.
Max’s principal instrument is baritone saxophone, but he plays alto and tenor saxophone, clarinet and bass clarinet, and flute. His accomplishments are many: marching band Drum Major, member of the Tri-Music honor society, winner of the Outstanding Overall Music Student Award, MVP of the Symphony band (freshman year), MVP of the Wind Ensemble (sophomore year), and MVP of the Jazz Band (junior year). As a senior, he was a teaching assistant with the Symphony band. Outside of school, Max has given private saxophone lessons, played with the Falmouth Town Band, and participated in CJazz, Flute Choir, and Saxophone Choir at the Cape Conservatory. Next year, he will attend Penn State as a music education major.
