Sing With Us

Come be a part of our growing family of singers!
The Choruses accept new singing members at the beginning of each half of the season. End of August for the Fall and end of January for the Spring. Singers are selected based on a vocal interview. The interview focuses on ability to sing on pitch and to blend within the assigned section and the chorus as a whole. Members must be able to attend weekly rehearsals. Below are the rehearsal times and emails to contact our directors:
