No auditions necessary. The only requirements are a love for music and the willingness to work hard. That combination makes for the Black Hawk College Community Chorale.

Jon Palomaki directs three choral groups at Black Hawk College. The Community Chorale will join Black Hawk's Concert Choir and Chamber Singers for a Spring concert on May 2nd at 7:30pm at First Congregational Church in Moline.

Recently, I sat in on the Community Chorale rehearsal for the upcoming concert. Age is no obstacle. There are college student singers along with a number of retirees from the community. Sixty year old Nancy Ferkel is an original member and says Palomaki has a gift for working with people and getting the best music out of them.

Twenty seven year old Kate Holsen has a beautiful singing voice. She occasionally sings solo. She calls her involvement in the group an amazing experience and an opportunity to make  new friends.

Several singers praise Jon for his ability to select a wide  variety of music, ranging from spirituals to fun pieces like Route 66. Palomaki says he has to decide what the group can do successfully, and build upon the choral sound.  

Jon Palomaki has been at Black Hawk College since 1995. He is the founding father of the college chorale.
