Join Us for a Joyful Singing Experience!
Here's what you need to know:
WHO are we? We are people who love to sing together. We enjoy the challenge of learning traditional choral music, show tunes and new arrangements. Fellowship and friendship are fundamental. Our rehearsals are fun!
WHAT do we sing? We perform two concerts the first weekend in December, and two concerts in late April or early May. In winter we sing holiday music, both sacred and seasonal. In spring we tackle something lighter and different. We often engage instrumentalists or soloists who add richness to our musical experience.
WHAT is the approach? Dedicated, disciplined, and light-hearted. We care about our music, and we want everyone to feel included, comfortable and at-home. We are motivated by positive reinforcement.
WHAT level of expertise do I need? We are seeking singers with previous choral experience. The ability to read music is a plus. There is no audition, but new members will sing briefly for our director on the first night so she can place you appropriately. Tenors and basses are especially welcome.
WHERE do we sing?
WHEN do we sing? We rehearse on Sunday nights from 7:00 to 9:15 pm – the perfect time, no competing obligations, invigorating and relaxing after the weekend. For the Winter 2018 session we start on Sunday, September 9, 2018 with a potluck for new and returning singers at 5:45 pm at Magnolia United Church of Christ.*
WHEN do we perform? We hold two concerts each on the first weekend in December and in late spring. Our next concerts will be on Saturday, December 1 and Sunday, December 2, 2018.
Money Regular members pay $130 dues per semester. This fee covers the following:
