Are there auditions or performances?
There are no auditions or performances! Our goal is to provide a safe and fun atmosphere where everyone, regardless of their ability, can experience the intellectual, emotional, and physical benefits of singing, along with the social rewards of singing in a group. We put no pressure on our members to audition, and the goal is to have fun without the stress of preparing for performance.
How do I join?
To join, all you need to do is show up! We're a drop in group, and always welcome brand new members! To ease the registration process, we've made our registration form available under the "Forms" section of the website. Please download, print, and fill out a registration form and bring it with you to your first session!
Try to arrive 10-15 minutes before we start at 7pm. This way, you'll have lots of time to finish registering and to pay (there is a fee of $10 per session), get settled, pick up your lyric book, grab a snack or drink, and mingle with our other members before we start singing!
For those with Facebook, following our page: a Facebook event is always created for an upcoming session, and posted on our page. You can also stay tuned here for the announcement of the event, and then be sure to RSVP. Your RSVP will help us keep track of who to expect, and how many members we should be ready for.
If you're not sure if you'll be able to make it, no problem! You're always welcome to RSVP "Interested" or just drop in.
