What to Expect at Auditions and Rehearsals


We hold two audition sessions each year, one in August just prior to the first rehearsal for the Christmas concert and one in January just before the first rehearsal for the spring concert.


The Chorale produces three concert works each season, one before Christmas, another in March, and a Pops concert before our summer break.


Fall (Christmas Concert): Rehearsals begin late in August and the performances are early in December.

Spring (Classics Concert): Rehearsals start early in January and the performance is in late March.

Pops Concert: Rehearsals start the week after the spring concert and the performances are at the beginning of June.


Rehearsals for the Chorale are on Monday nights throughout each concert session, from 7:00-9:00 p.m. (location TBA).


Extra rehearsals before performances may be required and notice will be provided well ahead of time. A full season schedule is provided to all members.
