Frequently Asked Questions

  • 1) Can I come to a practice without “committing”? I just want to “kick the tires” first.
    • Sure. Just show up. We’ll even let you come back a second time. But if you want to sing in the December concert, you may only miss three rehearsals after September 8.
  • 2) What kind of music do you sing?
    • Only the good stuff. There’s great choral music in many different genres. We won’t artificially limit ourselves to just one or two.
  • 3) Do you do “classical” music?
    • Maybe. But only if it’s good music! We we strive to sing all music with excellence and authenticity. That means if we pick a country song, you might hear us scoop and slide with a country twang, because, well, that’s the way it should be done. And if we do a “classical” piece, we’ll make sure it’s tuned and toned to the highest possible standard we can achieve.
  • 4) Can I sing with you if I can’t read music?
    • Here’s an inside secret: many other singers can’t “read music” either. If that doesn’t stop them, why should it stop you? We take seriously our mission to promote the love of music in this community. That means we’ll work with you with whatever level of skill you bring to us.
  • 5) I’ve never sung in a chorus before.
    • That’s not a question. And it shouldn’t keep you away either. Our director had never directed before he directed a choir, but that didn’t stop him. See the logic there?
  • 6) I don’t know whether I’m a soprano, alto, tenor, or bass. Can I still sing with you?
    • Sure. Just come. We’ll figure out pretty quickly where you’ll fit most comfortably.
  • 7) If you heard me sing, you wouldn’t want me.
    • We’ll be the judge of that. Give us a try.
