 dsc6043 2JOIN THE CHORUS!

Fall 2016 Session Begins
on Wednesday evenings or Thursday mornings starting September 7 or 8

The fall session of Chorus begins on Wednesdays from 6:30-8:30 pm  beginning on September 7 at All Souls Church, or on Thursdays from 10 am - noon beginning on September 8 at Centre Congregational Church. The first two rehearsals are open to anyone who would like to come and check out chorus for the first time. Be sure to spread the word and bring your friends!

 All women and girls over 10 are welcome, and there are no auditions. Reading music is optional since music is taught by rote and by ear with part recordings available. Music is an eclectic mix from around the world that is spirited and spiritual.

While many singers enjoy performing, some prefer to sing weekly and not participate in the concerts at the end of the session (November 19 & 20). The fee is $110 for adults, family pairs are $170 and students are $60. Financial aid is available (see below).

Songs the chorus director, Becky Graber, chooses are uplifting in meaning as well as in sound.

To register, print out our chorus registration letter and mail along with your deposit of at least $40 (or full payment) to Becky by August 19 (deadline for returning singers who have sung with chorus in the past two years). New singers can print one and bring to the first rehearsal to see if chorus is right for you. Again, the first two rehearsals are open to anyone who would like to come and check out chorus for the first time. To apply for financial aid, download the financial aid form here and return with $20 deposit as soon as possible, but by our third rehearsal (September 21 or 22). For more information, contact director Becky Graber at 254-8994, or via email at: bwchorus@gmail.com.

Our first concert on video so you can see what all the hype is about. 100% of the songs here are written by our director, Becky Graber, as a celebration of our 20th Anniversary singing together. It was one of the most special concerts we can remember and now you can see it too!!
