HOW TO JOIN
There are no qualifications for joining our chorus except commitment. We are open to anyone with a desire to sing, even if you think you can't. There is no audition. Just show up to rehearsal and you're in. If you're a beginner and need help, we may partner you with a more experienced member until you get the hang of it. And, we provide a rehearsal CD each season of the entire program with your part sung by a professional which will make it much easier for you to learn your music.
We rehearse every Monday 6:30 PM - 8:30 PM, at the Church of the Holy Apostles, 296 9th Avenue (at 28th Street) from September to December for the Winter concert and January to June for the Spring concert with time off for holidays. We ask you not to miss more than three rehearsals in any one concert season. There are two dress rehearsals the week before the concert which are mandatory.
Please be sure to check our rehearsal page before you come!
We request an $12 contribution per rehearsal. However, this is not mandatory and we are happy to accept whatever you can afford, or nothing at all. We want everyone to be able to sing. If you wish to contribute, you may make a contribution with a tax-deductible check.
We ask everyone to use a rehearsal CD and to contribute $20 to cover production costs. However, because we want everyone to participate, the CDs are free if you can't afford to purchase one
